Iwo-Tori-shima volcano (Japan): possible small eruption

Saturday Jul 06, 2013 10:04 AM | DOOR: T

A possible small eruption occurred this morning. Tokyo VAAC received a (pilot) report of an ash plume rising to 7,000 ft (2.1 km) and drifting 40 nautical miles to the north of the small island. No ash could be detected on satellite images, and sometimes weather clouds are mistaken for ash plumes.
On the other hand, the volcano has had relatively frequent small eruptions during the past centuries and new activity would not be a surprising event.
