re: #32 klys

Reports of fatalities coming in through the Japanese media on the Mt. Ontake eruption. All in Japanese so I have nothing to link (going on husband’s translations) but apparently they may have found more than 30 dead up near the summit.

Damn. An awful lot of volcanologists and other people (41 in total) were killed by pyroclastic flows on Mt Unzen in 1991.

Stratovolcano eruptions are nothing to fuck with. They are nothing at all like the relatively tame low volatile gas and low viscosity eruptions in Hawaii. A pyroclastic flow is nature’s version of a hydrogen bomb. You do NOT want to be near one.
