AMBRYM VOLCANO
16°15'00"S 168°07'00"E, Summit Elevation 4377ft (1334m)
Current Vanuatu Volcano Alert Level: Level 2

According to the Vanuatu Geo-Hazards observatory observations, the Ambrym volcano activity is slightly increasing. Its Volcanic Alert Level remains at Level 2 but this may change in the coming days or weeks.

 

Areas of high risk remain around all Ambrym volcano craters (Benbow and Marum (Maben-Mbwelesu, Niri-Mbwelesu, and Mbwelesu)). Thus approaching the volcano is not safe; it would be safer to view the volcano far away from these craters to avoid any volcano related incidents. Therefore it is recommended that all communities, villages, visitors and travel agents seriously consider this information.

 

Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-Hazards Department maintains close monitoring of Ambrym volcanic activity and the next information will be issued when more information is available.
