Sakurajima volcano news

Sakurajima volcano (Kyushu, Japan) activity update: relatively frequent and unusually strong vulcanian eruptions, plumes up to 3.7 km altitude

Tuesday May 08, 2012 10:05 AM | DOOR: T

JMA reported that during 1-7 May explosive eruptions from Sakura-jima's Showa Crater occurred 17 times and ejected tephra as far as 1.3 km from the crater.
Very small eruptions from Minami-dake Crater occurred on 3 and 5 May.
Based on information from JMA, the Tokyo VAAC reported that during 3-4 and 6-8 May explosions produced plumes that rose to altitudes of 1.5-3.7 km (5,000-12,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted S, SE, and E.
Ash was observed in satellite imagery on 3 May. A pilot observed an ash plume on 7 May that rose to an altitude of 2.4 (8,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted SE.
