Kadovar Still Active

The Kadovar Volcano has now developed four volcano vents which are indicating more activity are expected in the coming days.

While one has become inactive in the last 24 hours, the South East Coastal Vent which is next to the sea has become very active, emitting thick white steam to about 600 meters above sea level.

A 24-hour situation report released from the Rabaul Volcano Observatory have also shown thick emissions from the main crater are now rising to over a kilometre above sea level.

Given the volcano’s collapsing structure, new eruptions will be gas-rich and explosive.

The Geohazard Department again has issued a strong warning to people, as well as shipping vessels and small boat operators to avoid the island.

In the meantime, supplies are being delivered to the displaced islanders, and the Government together with the East Sepik Administration have agreed on a major relocation exercise.

So far there have been any casualties reported.
