Volcanic Activities on Kadovar Island Subsiding

Reports from the Rabaul Volcano Observatory indicate that volcanic activity on Kadovar Island is slowing down despite continuous eruptions.

In a 24-hour report released on Friday, the RVO explained there is now a significant drop in Sulphur Dioxide emissions, which indicates no new lava displacement.

The report also revealed the volcano vents are emitting weak to moderate steam to over 100 meters above the island.

Meanwhile, the RVO has also confirmed the Karkar Island in Madang has emitted steam from its southern crater with no eruptions.

Experts from the RVO say Karkar is an active volcano, which is currently dormant and vigilance should be maintained at all times.

They have also called on authorities in Madang to review their disaster management contingencies if a disaster strikes.
