Erupting Volcanoes

I find them fascinating. But aren't most natural *disasters*? I find hurricanes and their influence over the ocean fascinating, too, and have stood on the boardwalk as hurricanes have churned off the coast. It's a very humbling experience.

So when I hear that a volcano somewhere in the world has begun to erupt, I get all kinds of excited and search for pictures and/or video of the explosion. Mount Mirapi is the latest and people have been flocking to watch. Is there such a thing as Volcano Chasers (you know, like Tornado Chasers)?

Update: It erupted again today.
