Puff, puff, puff

The volcano gives us no rest: Time and again it puffs out smaller or bigger smokey clouds into the sky, like a notorious chain smoker. However, all of them are harmless phreatic eruptions, i.e. explosions in the crater, which are caused by a combination of heat and water. The explosions may still stir up some ash, which sometimes rises up to 2000 meters above the crater. The experts keep a very close eye on what is happening and remain calm for the time being. That doesn't stop a few registered visitors from panicking anew: The first cancelled bookings are arriving in the hotels again these days......
