Manam volcano (Papua New Guinea): aftermath of Friday's eruption
Monday Aug 03, 2015 16:05 PM | VON: T
It seems that no fatalities have occurred during the large explosion on Friday (31 July). According to news articles, only one child was injured by falling lapilli, but survived and could be treated in a hospital.
Up to 2 cm of ash has been deposited over most of the island, destroying or damaging much farmland, many houses and contaminating water sources. Respiratory problems are a major concern in the aftermath of the eruption, which, however, could easily have had a much worse outcome.
There are no reports of evacuations of people from the island (as occurred in 2004, when a similar, although even larger explosion occurred, killing several people and prompting more than 9000 people to be evacuated).
