Area near yesterday's steam eruption in Rotorua Lake (image: newshub.co.nz / twitter)
A small steam explosion (hydrothermal eruption) occurred yesterday in Lake Rotorua. A fountain of water was seen ejected to about 30 m. [read more].
According to New Zealand scientists who closely monitor the country's many active volcanoes (all currently very calm), this is not a sign of impending volcanic activity and there is likely no reason to worry:
"Eruptions have been known in this area all through our written history (1830 – present), so it’s not unusual. The occurrence of steam eruptions has been variable in Rotorua, with many during the exploitation of the geothermal system, however they declined after the bore closure (1987). The last significant one was in 2001."
