Sally - there's no lava while there's still water in the crater. It started to rain yesterday in the ash-affected area which will clean the air and keep the ash from blowing around. For now at least. It was impossible for them to get the sheep inside since it was no way to see anything in the dark. The sheep's eyes were pretty badly affected by the ash, many were practically blind when they were rounded up, but fortunately most recovered quickly once they got inside and their eyes were cleaned. A few will take more days to heal and get their sight back.

Yesterday's news: First footage of the crater and news of the clean up as well as some videos of past eruptions .....

Tonight's news: Another video from the crater
