An offshore mud volcano erupted in the Sea of Azov just off the coast of the Russian Taman Peninsula on Sunday. The volcano spat out hot water and gases mixed with sand and dirt, creating a mud island dozens of meters wide. Mud volcanoes, a popular attraction on the Taman Peninsula, are often used as part of popular therapeutic treatments for arthritis and nerve pain.
