Right now, there are 51 volcanoes actively erupting on the planet. This week’s top story regards the Glacier Peak volcano in Washington State, which the US Geological Survey does not think is sufficiently monitored. Meanwhile, at Mauna Loa, a series of earthquakes occurred on its edifice due to the movement of magma. Also, at volcanoes such as Taal and Ebeko, short lived phreatic eruptions occurred. This video will discuss these volcano related news stories, as told and analyzed by a volcanologist.
