Volcano erupts in Japan

Sendak threw a column of smoke and ash from the crater to an altitude of seven kilometers, and large stones flew within a radius of 600 meters.

In Japan, on the morning of February 3, the Shindake volcano erupted on the island of Kutinoerabu. This was reported by the National Meteorological Administration of the country.

It is noted that the column of smoke and ash from the crater reached a height of seven kilometers, and large stones flew in a radius of 600 meters.

The agency urged not to approach the crater closer than two kilometers because of the threat of throwing stones and pyroclastic flows in new eruptions.

On Kutinoerabu, where the volcano is located, there are several boarding houses with hot springs, and the island itself is part of the Kirishima Yaku National Park.

The last time Sindake erupted was in early January this year and before that in November last year.

Recall, on December 9, 2019, there was an eruption of a volcano on the Isle of White Island in New York. At the time of the incident, 47 people were in the vicinity and on the island, including tourists from Australia, the UK, the US, China, and Malaysia.
