“Extinct” Alaskan Volcano Awakens After 10,000-Year Slumber
28 Sep 06 – Alaska’s Fourpeaked Volcano, about 100 miles southwest of Homer, has become active after last erupting more than 10,000 years ago.

“This one caught us on our toes. We had Fourpeaked in that category of volcanoes we didn’t need to worry about,” said Michael West, a seismologist with the University of
Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute.
Last Wednesday, scientists assigned Fourpeaked a yellow in its four-color warning system, defined as elevated seismic activity with the potential of an eruption. They warned that a small to moderate eruption in the next days to week is possible, with ash plumes higher than 33,000 feetand possible lava flows.http://www.avo.alaska.edu/activity/Fourpeaked.php
Hmmmm, in the past, volcanic activity has picked up in sync with the 11,500-year ice-age cycle. Is this eruption just a coincidence, or …?
