According to a report by the Indonesian news site Merdeka, villagers of Sitoluama, in the District of Laguboti, Toba Samosir, noticed on Wednesday, May 27, that ceramic floors in their homes were feeling hot under their feet and that hot steam and smelly gas were coming out of the ground.
A resident of the area, Purasa Silalahi, told local reporters on Saturday, May 30, that he noticed vapors in his house about ten kilometers from Balige, Toba Samosir regency capital.
“Hot steam and gas was coming out of the pores of the soil it is feared to threaten the safety of people around, so we report them to the government.”

that it would be when there is a large uplift in the area or something of that nature?
There already is large uplift in the form of the dome, however yes a change in uplift velocity would be an indicator. More likely indicator would be volcanic tremor which can last from minutes to days and would probably be caused by magma on the move, or by steam escaping and secondly the appearance and/or increase of long period earthquakes - see here for an explanation of the two earthquake types at a volcano.
Earthquakes produced by stress changes in solid rock due to the injection or withdrawal of magma (molton rock) are called volcano-tectonic earthquakes (Chouet, 1993). These earthquakes can cause land to subside and can produce large ground cracks.
Now, however, an international team of researchers has concluded that a supervolcano can erupt at any time simply because of its massive size, without any outside trigger, making such cataclysmic eruptions both less predictable and more likely to occur.
Is this the most likely thing to occur as the area seems to be mostly solid rock around it? If so, and if these cracks start appearing, does that mean RUN? Personally I am not worried about it as whatever happens, happens and there is nothing I can do. I am just wondering about the people in the immediate area. As far as I have ever seen, there doesn't seem to be much warning from the time evac is ordered to the eruption. From what you have said about this one, it would seem that even an evac wouldn't do much good unless you could get them to the opposite side of the world.....and even then it would only be a matter of time.

You would think...given that this is likely THE biggest natural disaster threat to the planet (other than an outside force), that it would be closely monitored...

I agree we should'nt have to leave this planet, and it's being watched over any way and they have so much advanced technology they could clean this planet up and its oceans too so don't worry about that earth is safe and so too is the population when the time comes although it's going to be a rocky ride for a while, I have been told that the pole shift is not going to happen so we can stop worrying about that one and as for the propaganda BS on the 2.5 mile commet that's going to hit in September this is a false flag for whatever is going to happen they are up to something we'll just have to wait and see won't we
