Mass Evacuation Planned in Vanuatu as Ambae Volcano Eruption Intensifies

Posted by feww on September 23, 2017

Alert Level for Ambae volcano is raised from Level 3 to Level 4 [0-5 scale]

Authorities in Vanuatu were preparing to evacuate up to 5,000 people on Saturday, as eruption on the 400sqkm Ambae island [Manaro Voui] continued to intensify.

“Volcanic activity at Ambae is continuing to increase. The Alert Level for Ambae volcano is raised from Level 3 to Level 4, or moderate eruption state,” said  Vanuatu Meteorology and Geohazards Department (GMVD).

“In the early hours, around 3-4am [on Saturday,] we noticed that the activity started to increase, followed by another eruptive phase… So the ash plume from Ambae is still there now. The ash fall is expected all around the island,” said the manager of the Geohazards Department at GVMD.

“The increased level of activity means increased area of risk. There’s more risk to people exposed on the island.”

The increased activity follows a 6.4 magnitude quake that struck 85km NNW of Isangel, Vanuatu, on September 20. [FEWW Ref: JQHM]

250,000 People Fleeing ‘Imminent’ Bali Volcano Explosion

Posted by feww on September 23, 2017

Bali Volcano Threatens to Blow

Up to million people are urged to evacuate Mt Agung precinct on the island of Bali, eastern Indonesia, as the restive volcano threatens to explode imminently.

Authorities raised the warning to the maximum level “four” on Friday night, indicating  a dangerous eruption was imminent within hours.

Up to 2,000 tremors have been shaking the massive volcano since Wednesday, increasing the probability of an explosive eruption.

The volcano last erupted (VEI 5) in 1963-1964, sending about 1.8 cubic meter of volcanic material 10km into the air, and killing at least 1,100 people. Mt Agung [aka, Gunung Agung] is one of Indonesia’s 132 active volcanoes.

Mt Agung threatens to explode

The volcano is ejecting white smoke and ash to a height of more than 3km above the crater, which could affect air travel.

“Volcanic activity remains high and there are indications of magma rising to the surface and causing tremors,” the National Disaster Management Agency has said, warning nearby residents and tourists against entering the exclusion zone.

Mt Agung is one of Indonesia’s 132 active volcanoes. A major eruption in 1963 killed about 1,100 people.

Popocatépetl eruption sends 2-km high column of smoke and ash into air

Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano erupted on Sunday (July 2), ejecting 2-km high column of smoke and ash into air, officials said.

Ash fallout was reported across multiple areas in Mexico State, including Ozumba, Amecameca, Tlalmanalco, Chalco, Ayapango, Tenango del Aire and San Pedro Nexapa.

Alert level for the volcano was raise to “Yellow,” which means it could continue to erupt at low to intermediate intensity, as authorities advised nearby residents to evacuate areas within a 12km.
