Unrest on Ruapehu?

Standard

GNS are monitoring Mt Ruapehu carefully.  Since late October there have been numerous small earthquakes 5 kms beneath the summit.  At the moment the temperature of Crater Lake is 20 degrees C whilst the temperature beneath Crater Lake is 800 degrees C.  This suggests a partial vent blockage.  GNS predict an eruption within weeks or months.  Exciting stuff.
