Piton de la Fournaise
I saw a very exciting facebook status update from my friend Julia yesterday
the active volcano on my little island is erupting!
So I had to investigate the matter further, the volcano in question is Piton de la Fournaise (peak of the furnace) on the island Reunion in the Indian Ocean. It a shield volcano and one of the most active in the world. The current eruption technically started last November and has a VEI 1, so it's on a pretty minor scale. The volcano does seem to be more a tourist attraction than a danger to humans, which is good and everyone seems to be safe which again is good.
Volcano Club is all about volcanoes, this blog accompanies the zine which is produced on occassion. The earliest complete surviving issue is from 1995, but archives reveal the origins of this great publication are even earlier. We are always looking for ideas because we're lazy and uninspired so if you have anything then please get in touch.
