Volcano Erupts On Suwanosejima Island, Kagoshima

The first day of the new year in Japan was marred by unsettling events, including strong earthquake and tsunami warnings in Ishikawa Prefecture. Adding to the concerns, the volcano on Suwanosejima Island in Toshima Village, Kagoshima, erupted around 3 p.m. local time. The eruption resulted in a volcanic ash column reaching a height of 1,600 meters, prompting authorities to issue warnings about potential large lava blocks.

According to the latest reports from the Japan Meteorological Agency, the eruption occurred at approximately 3 p.m. local time. The volcanic ash is expected to disperse in a southwesterly direction, reaching its peak impact at around 9 p.m. local time. Consequently, a small amount of volcanic ash is predicted to fall on the island during this period.

In light of the eruption, the Meteorological Agency has maintained a level 2 eruption warning status for the area surrounding the Fukunoseshima crater. Local residents within a 1-kilometer radius of the crater have been urged to remain vigilant and be prepared for the possibility of large lava falls
