Volcano Watch suspended because of federal government shutdown

During the federal government shutdown, the weekly Volcano Watch column is suspended.

Volcano monitoring data on HVO’s website will be kept up to date, and critical monitoring instruments will be maintained.


Static website content will not be updated until further notice and information might be outdated.
