Ash plume and pyroclastic flow from the eruption of Kuchinoerabujima this morning
A powerful vulcanian explosion occurred this morning at 11:02 am local time at the volcano. The eruption - a both vertical and partially lateral massive explosion, occurred with apparently little warning from the Shintake vent and produced large pyroclastic flows by column collapse. A tall mushroom ash plume quickly rose to approx. 12 km altitude (36,000 ft). ...plus

Glow from Shin-Dake crater
Incandescence can be seen from the crater of the volcano, suggesting mild activity (e.g. release of very hot gasses) continues. Since its last eruption in August 2014 the volcano remains at alert level 3 (out of 5).
