We knew our favorite Kilauea Volcano watchers Steve and Donna O’Meara were world famous in their field (and on Volcano World!), now National Geographic readers know them as well.
A video —recently posted on National Geographic’s Web site—features the couple and their team of “volcano commandos” traversing the slopes of Italy’s Stromboli volcano. The footage was shot in 2002 for a National Geographic Explorer film Volcano Chasers.
“Believe it or not, we were actually working on a daily basis INSIDE the active vents,” wrote Donna, by e-mail from Hawaii’s Big Island. “When we filmed, about four of them were going off. You never knew where to point your cameras!” Story credit: Hawaii Magazine.Com
