    Residents' concerns may reflect their proximity to and history with Paricutin, which is described as a pyroclastic cone.

    If a completely new volcano was forming, unconnected with other known volcanos,
    I would expect signs of it, significant tremors at least, before lava breaks to surface and starts burning animals etc.
