whoops, nearly same time we posted this thread Very Happy

I'll bring mine in & delete my thread:


Shinmoe-dake that made minor eruption on 19th January, erupted again on 26th. According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, a gray ash plume rose up to 1500m above crater rim around 15:30(JST). VAAC(Volcanic Ash Advisory Center) reported it once reached 7500m. By 18:00(JST) the Volcanic Alert Level is raised to level 3.


Pic is from February 4

-----------
The Volcano has been erupting on and off since the end of January, read also this:

--------------


Days of violent blasts from southwest Japan’s Mount Kirishima Shinmoe volcano complex broke windows in nearby communities and sent large volcanic rocks raining down within a 5-mile radius of summit.

Vulcanologists caution that a dome of lava is building within the volcano’s crater, but were uncertain if it would burst out and spill over the mountain’s rim.

Activity on Feb. 1 was the strongest since a 1959 eruption, but was not expected to spread to other volcanoes nearby.

That's a lot of lava! Hope they continue to be safe over there in Japan.
