Based on analysis of MODIS satellite imagery and information from the Vanuatu Geohazards Observatory, the Wellington VAAC reported ash plumes from Gaua during 13-16 and 19-21 April. The plumes regularly rose to altitudes of 3 km (10,000 ft) a.s.l. The advisories on 14-15 April noted that the plumes were mostly steam.
A spokesman for the Vanuatu Disaster Management Office described the activity as "huge, dark plumes" in an AAP news report.
