Santorini locals began to suspect last year that something was afoot with the volcano under their Greek island group. Wine glasses occasionally vibrated and clinked in cafes, suggesting tiny tremors, and tour guides smelled strange gasses.
Part of the municipality of Santorini, Nea Kameni ("new burnt island") is a small uninhabited (and geologically active) island within the flooded Santorini caldera. That caldera, which forms the Santorini island group today, was formed during the volcano's last major eruption, some 3,600 years ago. That was the second-largest blast in human history and may have destroyed the Minoan civilization on nearby Crete (and possibly inspired the myth of Atlantis).
