VAAC Darwin's ash plume forecast
VAAC Darwin's ash plume forecast
A large explosive eruption occurred at the volcano today. The event produced an ash column that rose to approx. 65,000 ft (20 km) altitude and started to drift SW.
VAAC Darwin changed aviation color code to red. This explosion, vulcanian or perhaps even sub-plinian in size, is the largest at the volcano in over 10 years. It seems to be similar to the powerful 24 Oct 2004 explosion.
