6 May, 2014

National Park Service FAQ reports there is no evidence that a caldera-forming eruption is imminent.  Although theoretically possible, such a catastrophe is unlikely to happen in the next 1,000 to 10,000 years.  If the volcano erupts at all, it will most likely have slow, oozing lava flows.  However, no scientific evidence suggests that such smaller events are coming, either.
