Kikai volcano (Japan) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 3 March-9 March 2021 (Continuing Activity)
In response to an eruption at Satsuma Iwo-jima, a subaerial part of Kikai's NW caldera rim, on 2 November 2019 JMA had raised the Alert Level to 2 (on a 5-level scale). Since then, surveillance cameras sometimes recorded minor incandescence reflected in emitted plumes. On 8 March JMA revised the Alert Level guidelines, keeping the level at 2, but reducing the exclusion zone around the crater from 1 km to 500 m.
