The volcano that’s in the news is a dangerous one – it’s a crater beneath a lake, and could make for a devastating eruption. It’s on the island of Ambae, which is the island on which James Michener based his famous Bali Hai – Michener was based in the New Hebrides (as Vanuatu used to be called) during WWII, and he was inspired to write Tales of the South Pacific. If you’re interested in volcanoes, see http://tinyurl.com/agfem which is a zoom-in on the island of Ambrym, where I climbed to the rim of an active volcano. In this zoom, you can even see the glow of the lava.
