Bamus Volcano (Papua New Guinea)

An eruption has occurred at Bamus volcano in Papua New Guinea. Forceful white-grey emissions to the south and southeast were reported between 1110 and 1210 hr (local time) on 12th July 2006. Multiple reports from ground observers have confirmed the emissions. This is the first eruption at the volcano in 120 years. This follows the first historically recorded eruption of nearby Karai volcano two days ago.
