Just a quick update for today (busy watching Red Sox vs. Reds, sorry, that is my other love: baseball). New reports concerning White Island suggest that an eruption is not imminent. Although there have been earthquakes nearby, whether or not they could directly lead to an eruption is unclear, but it sounds like geologists in New Zealand on trying to be cautious. This is the fun/challenge of predicting and monitoring volcanoes - the signs might be there, but you never know if the signs are all leading the same way.
