Information released from the Department of Mineral Policy and Geohazards Management revealed that the eruption will continue for an indefinite period.
The plume created by the volcanic eruption has gone as high as three thousand meters into the sky.
It is a very sad moment for the people of Rabaul especially when the entire district was gearing up to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the 1994 eruptions.
The continuously eruption has caught the villagers off guard and similar to what happened in 1994 eruptions, there was no warming from the Rabaul Vulcanological Observatory Centre.
In an interview with the Officer in Charge at RVOC Ima Itikarai, he said, there were signs of a volcano eruption but the they cannot really detect when the volcano eruption will occur.
At the times this story was complied, EMTV was advised that officers from RVOC were out assessing and collecting data from the eruption.
The people in Rabaul have been relocated to Kerevat and Vudal in the Gazelle District.
