Answer: Some volcanoes are near major population centers, so an eruption has the potential to disrupt business and travel as well as to hurt/kill large numbers of people.

It's extremely important. There are obvious hazards to nearby residents. Beyond human safety, there are huge economic concerns. It's not that eruptions can be stopped, but, like a hurricane, it's good to know when it's coming.
