Kirishima volcano news & activity updates

Kirishima volcano in Kyushu, Japan on high alert level

ma, 30 jul 2012, 10:30
10:30 AM | DOOR: T
As our colleague Marc Szlegat reported on Vulkane.Net, the alert level of the Japanese Kirishima volcano (Kirishimayama) was raised last month"orange". This is the third out of 4 warning levels and means that an eruption could occur any time.
Last year in March, the Shinmoedake crater of the complex volcano Kirishima had a violent eruption that make the headlines. The volcano is located close to the other volcano currently on orange alert in Kyushu, Sakura-jima, which last week had a stronger explosion that caused ashfall in the nearby city of Kagoshima.

Kirishima volcano near Kagoshima town on Kyushu Island exploded violently earlier today (13 March), sending an ash plume to 4 km elevation. This is the first significant activity since March 1. It can not be ruled out, but probably remains speculation that the violent 8.9 magnitude earthquake on 11 March played a role in the reawakening of Kirishima. ... Lees alle

Over the past days, Kirishima's overall intensity of the eruption seems decreasing. Kirishima continues to grow its lava dome and produce small to moderate vulcanian-type explosions at rates of 5-10 per day. Strong pressure waves were accompanying the explosions and could be felt in Kirishima town. People are alerted not to approach the volcano in a radius of 4 km because of the risk of falling bombs.

Kirishima volcano had a strong explosion from the lava dome on 31 January. Windows were shattered by the pressure wave up to 8 km away, and bombs landed up to 2 km distance. Authorities have extended the exclusion zone to 4 km from the crater as new explosions can occur any time. Lees alle

The new lava dome inside Kirishima's Shinmoe-dake crater seen on 31 Jan 2011 and an infrared image showing the hot central part of the dome (Source:Japan Meteorological Agency - http://www.seisvol.kishou.go.jp/tokyo/volcano.html)
The lava dome inside Kirishima's crater is growing at a fast rate. Judging from areal photos, it now more than 500 m wide and well under way of soon over-spilling the Shinmoe-dake crater. If this happens, pyroclastic flows will likely be generated and could threaten nearby areas; although explosive activity has calmed down a lot, large explosions could occur any time. For this reason Japanese authorities have extended the exclusion zone from 2 to 3 km, and evacuated more than 600 residents of the town of Takaharu located on the eastern slope of Kirishima volcano.
