nah. that stuff should be mostly locked down by moisture and snowfall. maybe a bit would be mobilised, but nowhere near the amounts shown in that image, and why would it be so 'plume' like and directed like it is in that image anyway?

Hawaii last report

deformation
[link to hvo.wr.usgs.gov]
and
"Volcano Watch: Crystals tell us a lot about Kilauea’s ongoing eruption"
[link to www.hawaii247.com]
...
By March 2008, magma that had forged its way into the summit during “the surge” finally made its spectacular debut in Halema`uma`u Crater, beginning this era of tandem Kīlauea eruptions.
After an explosive beginning, the summit eruption has settled into a mode of perpetual churning of a consistently hot, olivine-bearing magma. Eruption temperatures of 1,165°C (2,129°F) in 2008 steadily declined to 1,155°C (2,111°F) by fall 2011. Since then, Pele’s tears shed from the lava lake surface indicate gradual heating to the current temperature of 1,160°C (2,120°F)...
This evidence suggests that, during the surge in magma supply, a new shallow magma chamber developed within the magma plumbing along the east rift, like an aneurysm in the well-worn artery to Pu`u `O`o, and in which stagnating magma is perpetually recirculated and flushed by pulses of fresh, hot magma from the summit.
The petrologic details of simultaneously erupted summit and rift zone lava provide opposing perspectives on magma complexities prior to rift eruption. Combined with geophysical and behavioral observations, petrologic monitoring at both ends of this eruption has led to better understanding of how and where magma is transported, stored, erupted, and recharged within the edifice of Kilauea Volcano.

8 :30 : Activity has not much changed since last night. It remained quite intense all through the night as can be seen on the tremor and the webcam images. During the night, a new lava flow appeared on the SW flank of the NSEC while powerful ejections of incandescent material persisted at the summit of the cone. Instead of a paroxysm, what is happening right now is a durable eruptive activity at the summit of Mount Etna.

you're welcome, glad to help!
about volcanoes: you will be surprised, but 99% of people do not know that they too live on top of volcanoes! though very ancient and with very long time without signs of life,
but what is a couple of hundred years of geology as a science compared to the age of the earth and the variety and variability of the processes going on?
for example, about 200 km away from me is the oldest surviving on earth craters - Girvas, age 2.5-3 billion years (by the way, was the icelandic volcano type). lava flows thick more than 100 meters, the area of the lava field is greater than 1,000 sq km, huge area spread lava bombs! and. .. almost no one from the local people did not know about it cool2

Paroxysm or no paroxysm?
Uploaded on Apr 12, 2013
...I observed the activity from 03:00 GMT (=local time -2) on 11 April, first at Monte Fontane on the east flank of Etna, then, when clouds covered the view from that side, from Monte Vetore on the southwest flank, where the view eventually was obstructed by weather clouds, too. Finally, I went to Piano del Vescovo, on the southeast flank, where visibility was rapidly improving as sunset approached, and at dusk, things became a fabulous display of lights and colors. Even without a lava fountain, this activity was extremely spectacular, in particular the soundtrack. I stayed at Piano del Vescovo, with countless other persons who came and went (I estimate that in total, between 300 and 500 people went to Piano del Vescovo, stayed for a shorter or longer period, and then went away), including a few friends and also new acquaintances. Everybody had a great time - but time did take its toll on me, and at 02:00 GMT on 12 April, I decided to go home in spite of the unabated activity.

As a matter of fact, the activity is still continuing vigorously, without lava fountains and with less tephra than the previous paroxysms, but attracting enormous attraction in the local population and in the media due to the good visibility, the continued loud detonations, and the extended duration of this eruptive episode...

few hours later

and finally, the new paroxysmThe lava fountain did not come, hour after hour, through the evening of 11 April and then through the night, and all the time there were those powerful explosions and loud, LOUD bangs, which made people in surrounding areas wonder what the hell was up with Etna. Also this morning, 12 April, the loud explosions continued, and in the clear morning light, a dense but almost ash-free gas plume was seen rising from the volcano and trailing southeast, for at least a hundred kilometers over the Ionian Sea.

When nobody thought anymore of a lava fountain during this particular eruptive episode, and all believed this would remain in Etna's history as a "paroxysm without lava fountains", a sort of failure, Lady Etna finally let loose. Shortly after noon on 12 April, the plume rising from the New Southeast Crater suddenly turned black, heavily charged with tephra (fragmented volcanic material: mostly ash and scoriaceous lapilli), and the base of this dark column was dull red. The lava fountain had finally started...


and

A mighty voice in the dark
Before you go any further, put on your headset and set the volume to a decent (not too loud) level :-D

On the evening of 11 April 2013 it looked very much like Etna's New Southeast Crater would produce its 10th paroxysmal eruptive episode of this year. But the expected lava fountain, which I had self-assuredly announced to all people who were with me at Piano del Vescovo, a spectacular observation point on Etna's southeast flank, did not come until the late forenoon of 12 April, on the anniversary of another spectacular lava fountain from the same crater (12 April 2012). Instead, the thing angrily growled and exploded, and this was a magnificent show as well - and Piano del Vescovo was rather crowded even for hours after midnight on 12 April 2013.

What some call the 10th paroxysm had a pattern which was very different from previous events. The start was much longer and the phase of maximum intensity was less powerful, as if the volcano had exhausted much of its energy in the preceding hours. We must note the role played by the gases during these eruptive episodes. As H. Tazieff liked to repeat, they are the driving force of the eruptions.

Etna's paroxysms are MADE by water vapor - which is initially built as H2O molecules into the structure of crystals like amphibole, then liberated at decreasing pressure and eventually forms bubbles in the ascending magma. Once a certain threshold is passed, the vapor decompresses and increases much more than a thousandfold in volume, making the magma foam - and that's the lava fountain.
By the way, today's lava fountain was still quite energetic, and lasted longer than the lava fountaining phases of all earlier paroxysms of this year. There were also pyroclastic flows, and significant tephra falls in the east-southeast sector of Etna...
the role of volcanic gas is still not enough appreciated worldwide in its importance, and Etna in this sense is teaching us a lot :-D

News of activity of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano, April 12, 2013, 11:30 (local time)
During this day continues to record the seismic signal of volcanic tremor, associated with the movement of fluids within the volcanic conduits and gas and ash emissions, which has been showing low energy levels.
In the morning it was observed by the webcams located in the area of the volcano, the plume of steam, gases and ash, with an approximate height of 1600 meters above the summit, heading to the northwest of the volcano presenting white, but with the presence of particulate matter (ash) See animation. There have been several reports from yesterday, officials from the National Natural Park Los Nevados and OVSM, fine ash fall in small amounts in areas surrounding the volcano.
Additionally, continued emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), evidenced in measurements of equipment installed in the field and through satellite images.
