Fukutokuokanoba undersea volcano eruption news

New Submarine Eruption at Fukutoku-Okanoba

Wednesday Oct 17, 2012 08:50 AM | BY: VOLCANOBULLETIN

An underwater volcanic eruption was detected on Tuesday morning, October 16th by a Coast Guard Vessel near Minami-Iwoto Island.

The Coast Guard vessel said that a column of white smoke was seen rising from the sea about 3 miles from Minami-Iwoto island.

An announcement by the Coast Guard stated that Fukutoku-Okanoba "the volcano spewed ash and smoke about 100 meters into the air, and the surrounding sea area changed to a yellowish-green color while other parts became a cloudy gray"

Possibilities have been raised that a permanent island could form.

A submarine volcano erupted in Japan. It is located about 6 kilometers north-northeast of Minami-Iwojima island in Ogasawaramura (about 1,300 kilometers from Tokyo).
On the evening of 2 July, the Japanese coast guard spotted large amounts of steam rising to about 1 km height above the sea at the site of the submarine volcano, as well as a strong discoloration of the water. On photos taken on 3 July, porous, steaming lava blocks are appearing on the surface of the sea. Ships are advised to avoid the area.
