White island erupting - visitors are warned!

White Island volcano has erupted like its web cam captured. Visitors are warned that further and stronger eruptions are possible. The (hydrothermal?) eruptions occour without warning and also the alert level has changed to 2 because of the experiencing signs of elevated unrest above known background levels. There was no ash eruption yet. The alert level has also changed from one to two due to "minor eruptive activity". It follows a code change last week when scientists discovered water levels in Crater Lake rose by about 3m to 5m overnight and the number of tremors had increased. There was a particularly stronger seismic episode recorded Sunday morning, ending in a volcanic earthquake at 4.54am that day. "It's told that it is now at similar levels to before the weekend."
The last "gentle eruption" took place in early 2001. There have been also "moderate-sized explosions" in July 2000 with fresh lava.
