They include Medicine Lake Volcano in Modoc County, Mt. Shasta to the west, Lassen Volcanic National Park, which erupted about 100 years ago, the Long Valley Volcanic Region near Mammoth Lakes, the Coso Volcanic Fields in Eastern California, and the Salton Buttes near the Mexican border. And for volcanologists, the eruption is an opportunity to share with the public what we know about how these massive, intricate systems work. Geologists warned Wednesday that Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could erupt explosively and send boulders, rocks and ash into the air around its summit in the coming weeks. Most of the remainder of the Big Island is unaffected for now, as are the other Hawaiian Islands.
The volcano, which has been spitting and sputtering lava for a week, has destroyed more than two dozen homes and threatened a geothermal plant.

"This volcano is very unique and we're lucky that it's not as risky as other volcanoes and we're able to go and see it without having it pose a threat to our safety", said Holowath.
At the current rate of change, that is about six or seven days away.
During steam-driven explosions, ballistic blocks up to two yards across could be thrown in all directions to a distance of about a half mile. When the water hits the lava, it also steams. And the dropped rocks maintain that steam in till it blows. The result was an explosion at 8:29 a.m. local time on May 10 that sent a plume of rocks and ash up a thousand feet above the volcano for about one hour. If another blast happens, the danger zone could extend about 3 miles from the summit to land that all falls within the national park, Mandeville said.
