Shindake volcano (Kuchinoerabu-jima island, Japan): alert level lowered

The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), the official government body in charge of monitoring volcanoes, lowered the alert level for the island, after no more significant activity has occurred at the volcano since 19 June 2015 (i.e. almost one year).
Current level was lowered from the second highest on the scale (4: "prepare for evacuation") to now 3 ("Do not approach the volcano").
The violent eruption of Mount Shindake volcano on 29 May last year triggered the evacuation of the 118 residents of the small island to neighboring Yakushima Island. The evacuation order was lifted in December last year, allowing the villagers to return to their island.
While it cannot be ruled out that small-scale eruptions occur again from the volcano, it is not expected to affect areas more than 2 km away from the crater.

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). ... [details]
