An underwater volcanic eruption was detected on Tuesday morning, October 16th by a Coast Guard Vessel near Minami-Iwoto Island.

The Coast Guard vessel said that a column of white smoke was seen rising from the sea about 3 miles from Minami-Iwoto island.

An announcement by the Coast Guard stated that Fukutoku-Okanoba "the volcano spewed ash and smoke about 100 meters into the air, and the surrounding sea area changed to a yellowish-green color while other parts became a cloudy gray"

Possibilities have been raised that a permanent island could form.
