Impressive! Reminds me of my granddad blowing smoke rings from a cigar... a couple of weeks before he had a sudden heart attack and died. It was very impressive to my 6-year-old self (the rings, that is, not the dying part!)

Pretty major eruption a couple of days ago in south Asia. Some amazing volcanic lightning was captured.

Lava has breached one of the 'berms' in Iceland. Doesn't look like much yet but shows that the slow and steady volcanic eruption is causing a slow and steady build up.

Further eruption of Ruang volcano has occurred on April 30th, 2024 at 02:52 local time, producing pyroclastic flows. I only just learnt about this eruption, so please feel free to correct me or add further information.

Pity the BBC can't get its terms right and has dumbed down from using the word 'lahar'.

Yes, I read that and wondered about the flowing cold lava, a misnomer if ever there is such a thing.
But then you perhaps have a journalist using English as their second language and an editor who’s not versed in vulcanology posting this story. Confused?

From the article: 'The phrase cold lava is a translation of the term "lahar" in Indonesian and Tagalog.'

The term is a new one on me, and I earned a B in GCSE in geography at a grammar school! The closest we ever got was "pyroclastic flow" - but that's quite a bit hotter, of course. It could also be the fact that the teacher was hopeless: I remember he gave only the briefest attention to physical geography (as he "didn't like it"), and instead focused on the (to me, boring) human geography. We had more lessons on the Maasai tribe than we did on the entire topic of volcanoes and plate tectonics, for example.

Annoyingly I ditched geography for business studies at A level, as he was going to be the teacher of it... he then quit unexpectedly over the summer holidays, but it was too late to change. That was the end of my dream (at the time) of working in meteorology, as the careers advisor said A level geography was a must. Pah.
