Volcanic activity in Suwanosejima, Toshima Village, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan has escalated, prompting an increase to Alert Level 3.

There has been ongoing vigorous volcanic activity in Suwanose Island, Toshima Village, Kagoshima Prefecture. A significant eruption occurred in the early hours of the 14th, with large volcanic rocks being ejected up to a kilometer away from the crater, prompting a call for caution in surrounding areas.

An eruption was confirmed at Mount Ontake (799 meters) on Suwanose Island around 00:22 on the 14th. As a result of this explosion, volcanic materials were ejected more than 1 kilometer from the crater. Also, large volcanic rocks have been found flying within about 2 kilometers from the Ontake crater, with rocks flying up to 1,100 meters from the center of the crater confirmed.

In view of the heightened volcanic activity, the Meteorological Agency raised the eruption alert level from 2 (crater area restriction) to 3 (mountain entry restriction) on the same day. This has resulted in a prohibition on entering a certain distance from the volcano, and strengthened measures to ensure safety.

At this point, there is no concrete information about any damages occurred, but the risk posed by volcanic effects including volcanic rocks remains. Residents and tourists are being urged to constanly check information from related agencies and follow their instruction. Predicting volcanic activity is difficult and the situation could change suddenly, so a high level of caution is required.
