Although earthquakes at Iliamna Volcano have steadily increased over the past three months, the observatory says that does not necessarily mean an eruption is imminent.

Iliamna Volcano lies about 130 miles southwest of Anchorage on the west side of Cook Inlet.

  1. funny how MSM seems to have selective amnesia re volcanos being active or even existing in polar regions.
    down sth we have Erebus still quietly simmering away as well.
