As we reported in the latest report, the volcano produced the submarine explosion on 13 August.
The Japan Coast Guard made a flight observation that confirmed the height of the eruption column. The spectacular white steam and gas plume rose to estimated 16 km (53,000 ft)! altitude and spread into an umbrella cloud.
