SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- A volcano on Montserrat shot ash some nine miles (15 kilometers) into the sky Thursday, one of its most dramatic events since a devastating 1997 eruption that drove away half the Caribbean island's population.
The partial collapse of the dome in the volcano's crater also unleashed flows of hot gas and rocks, triggering sirens for the evacuation of about 20 people from a nearby village.

Paul Cole, director of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, said it appeared to be the most material ejected by the volcano in about four years. He estimated 10 percent to 15 percent of the hardened lava dome had collapsed.

"When we're looking at the lava dome now, there's a large scoop out of it that's missing," Cole said

Yeah i only just caught the tail end of a report on French TF1 news, itr took a while to find much about untill i realised it was Montserrat.
There are plenty of vids on youtube aswell it seems.

And Wolf, i doubt it is the end. Just a volcano.
Still no reason not to enjoy yourself.

You should live like it is your last day everyday, might not be the end of the world - but who knows when you will get hit by a bus? :p (always make sure you have clean underwear on just in case! ;p)
