Augustine volcano could erupt again!

Scientists say pressure is building again at Augustine Volcano. Activity at the island volcano had subsided for weeks. Scientists say the likeliest explanation for the new pressure is that Augustine's new lava dome is sealing off vents in the volcano. That would trap volcanic gas.

Scientists say an eruption could occur again, although it probably would be less explosive than the huge eruptions that disrupted commercial air travel in January.
Augustine is located 180 miles southwest of Anchorage.
