How would you know if Yellowstone was about to erupt? I would imagine the early warning signs would be much much different from a cascade composite volcano...

How common is it for a composite volcano like Mt. St Helens to erupt in a lateral blast? I listened to a speaker who believed that there was evidence of lateral eruptions triggered by massive landslides in the ancient Absarokas.

What early warning signs do Cascade volcanologists look for when predicting an eruption or mudflow? Are they the same for say, Mt. St Helens and Mt. Rainier?
