Kuchinoerabu-jima volcano (Japan): new explosion on 18 June
vendredi juin 19, 2015 11:05 | AUTEUR : T
Another eruption occurred from the Shindake crater shortly after noon on 18 June. It was not directly observed due to cloud cover and the island being evacuated, but sent out a clear explosion signal picked up on seismic stations.
Japan maintains the highest alert level (5 out of 5) and the evacuated island inhabitants are currently not allowed to return to their homes.
