Mount Redoubt Eruption 

Volcanologists are getting excited by lots of seismic activity at Mount Redoubt, 106 miles (170 km) southwest of Anchorage, Alaska. The indications are that the volcano is about to blow and when it does erupt, it is likely to be quite spectacular.

The magma from Mount Redoubt contains a lot of silica, which traps gas under pressure, so when it reaches the surface, just like taking the stopper off a shaken-up bottle of soda, it explodes with a rather big pop.
