Hundreds of quakes shake villages around smoking Peruvian volcano
Hundreds of small earthquakes have shaken the earth around the Sabancaya volcano in southern Peru over just a few days and the rumbling, along with plumes of smoke spewing up to 320 feet high, have put officials on alert to evacuate the area.

I saw that one on the NEIC website.
largest of the quake series was approximately N. of Sabancaya.
This bit came in handy as the NEIC maps do not name nearby volcanoes & no volcanism was reported by that site.
Looks like Sabancaya is joining the list of active volcanoes on the Smithsonian list. Last volcanism with a precursor quake series identified by the NEIC was Havre seamount (Kermadec arc), and previously... Nabro (Afar hotspot).
