Amazing footage of hikers scrambling down Mt. Ontake in Japan after the volcano erupted earlier today.
A totally scary scenario – without warning, the volcano sent an ash cloud down the slope as hikers were out enjoying a gorgeous day. While not a huge eruption and dozens were able to escape the eruption to safety, some people are still missing. (Update 9/28 – 41 missing hikers, 30 confirmed dead).
i09 has a great write up of the eruption and a some links and photos.
