I’m a volcano geek. Mount St. Helens blew when I was nine years old, and the vulcanologist who died during the 1980 eruption grew up in my hometown.
That being said, thanks to the Internet and a WebCam, I can be there and watch the eruption roll out without spending thousands on plane tickets. St. Helens just threw out a large steam eruption which looks to be much larger than what we’ve seen in the past week.
Update: CBS News is offering a live video feed. Warning, it’s a Windows Media file.
