Vulcanian-type explosions continue from the Minamidake summit crater. The last explosive eruption was recorded at 13:35 local time yesterday as increasingly larger plume of ash emissions and gas content can be seen rising from the crater. Ash column reached up to 8,800 ft (2,682 m) altitude and drifted SE.
Blocks and bombs were ejected as far as 500 m-700 m distance from the Minamidake summit crater.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows could affect an area of about 2 km distance from the main crater.
