Really does seem to be the Year of the Volcano

This was described as a 'mild eruption' in norther Japan (can you see it from where you are Dan?) which came without observed precursor signs, which is scary, though the mountain was on an alert 3 level

Experts don't know if it's an indicator of a bigger eruption to follow or not

1 person was killed and several injured - some skiers are trapped on the mountain - with interesting stories to tell! Efforts are underway to bring them down

In the news story there is incredible footage of boulders being launched out of the crater - looking at the area here with these massive boulders plonked around the place I'd wondered if they didn't get here in a similar event. That would be some serious 'incoming'
