Recent Volcanic Eruptions in Vanuatu - John Seach

Over the past month there have been eruptions at three volcanoes in Vanuatu. Ongoing eruptions are occurring at Yasur volcano on Tanna Island. Stromolian and mild Vulcanian eruptions are ejecting lava up to 300 m high. Several molten lava fragments have fallen close to observers on the crater rim, who are often unaware of potential risks at the volcano. Ash eruptions have been reported at Ambrym and Lopevi volcanoes in central Vanuatu.
