The great mud volcano continues

Eventually, the reservoir that held all this mud is going to collapse into a giant crater. Then the whole thing will be a lake. The people that pricked this balloon are still having a party, but the government is going to have to treat this is as the equivalent of a giant dam, and move people out. The trouble may be that the country has no room for a displaced population. And tomorrow, they could have a giant earthquake!

It looks like the max PGV was about 8-16 cm/s, only enough to break very weak things, and maybe spill some shelves.
