Mt Shinmoe eruption

Post by MPMalloy » Sat Jun 23, 2018 12:52 pm

From RSOE EDIS Event Report:
The Mt Shinmoe volcano in southwestern Japan erupted explosively again on Friday after having a similar eruption on April 5, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The 1,421-meter mountain straddling Kagoshima and Miyazaki prefectures erupted at 9:09 a.m., spewing ash and smoke up to 2,600 meters in the air and with large volcanic rocks flying as far as 1.1 kilometers from the crater, the agency said. Local authorities said there have been no reports of injuries or damage to houses so far. The eruption has not affected flights to and from Miyazaki and Kagoshima airports.
