Heat scans are now showing greatly increased temperatures at the surface in the volcano crater and earthquakes are occurring at about one every five minutes. Scientists are saying this shows magma is much closer to the surface, and gas measurements also support this.

When I woke up this morning and was getting ready for work, I looked out the front window, from which I can see the mountain, and saw a column of steam lifting out of the crater. This was the first time I have been home at a time when clouds were cleared and something was happening.

I shot a couple of pictures, and will try to get around to transferring them from the camera to the computer and uploading soon.
