Sounds interesting.
I was there earlier in this year and heard a few stories.
They seem to be recovering well though, since most of the ash was exported.LOL.

We brought some home as a souvenier all the same.

Just to help with the exports.

The Icelandic met office keep good updates on activity there .btw.

Kamchatka has numerous active volcanoes and Bezymianny has produced a large explosion.

In another news, an ancient supervolcano has been discovered near Hong Kong.

I thought it was a good programme. It was interesting and informative. I think the BBC ought to make more 'Volcano Live' episodes touring other volcanoes of the world, such as Vesuvius, Laacher See, Yellowstone and those of Kamchatka, Indonesia, just to name a few.

Interesting to see that Nicargua's San Christabel volcano has erupted (rather impressively) only a few days after the 7.6 magnitude quake in neighbouring Costa RIca.

A bit of a run on Geirfugladrangur in SW. Iceland lately.

Most likely part of a swarm, but interesting all the same.

That link does not seem to be working and I can't see any sign of any large quake near the UK today on the USGS, BGS or EMSC sites?

That link works for me but shows the earthquake was in February 2008.

Its reported on BGS as a 2.4 event, but may actually been an explosion and not an earthquake.

There's been an earthquake swarm at WSW of Old Faithful Geyser, Yellowstone.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/.

On other side of the world, The Klyuchevskoy volcano, the highest active volcano in Eurasia, has started erupting in Kamchatka.

http://english.ruvr.ru/2012_10_15/Klyuchevskoy-volcano-starts-erupting-in-Kamchatka/.

And there is a strong concern in the media about a future eruption of Mt Fuji.

This is pary of an ongoing warm in the Tjörnes Fracture Zone to the north of Iceland. Apparently there are no volcanoes in the immediate vicinity but there have been a large number of quakes in the region over the last 24 hrs or so, so it will be interesting to see what if anything develops in the coming days.

Here is a couple of useful links:
