Watching a volcano erupt sounds like a once in a lifetime opportunity. However, if you live in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, volcanic eruptions are an almost hourly affair. Situated at the base of the highly active Santiaguito dome complex, Quetzaltenango is home to around 200,000 people who’ve somehow found a way to live next to what may be the world’s noisiest neighbor.
In this episode of Today I Learned, National Geographic explorer and volcanologist Stephanie Grocke explains what might be driving Santiaguito’s frequent eruptions.
