Volcano Erupts

The other day (Sunday) a volcano on Okmok Island in the Aluetian chain erupted. It only spewed some ash, but still they evacutated the few people that did live on the island. There's actually a cattle ranch on the island at the old fort that was established there. Apparently they are making the cows fend for themselves :) For more information you can check out the Alaska Volcano Observatory website.Image courtesy of AVO/ADGGS
