Will Mount Baker erupt anytime soon? We would have lots of notice, experts say

As officials in New Zealand continue to search for missing people after a volcano erupted and killed at least five people, some are wondering if Mount Baker could be next.

Bernie Housen with the geology department at Western Washington University says Mount Baker will erupt at some point, but it’s very difficult to say when.

“The volcano in New Zealand has a little smaller vent but it was in a more active stage, so it had a lot more steam and gas activity,” he says.
