This means that some volcanic explosions remain intense, volcanic bombs may fall in and/or around the crater and volcanic gas and ashes can also affect some villages. The area of risk remains around the volcanic crater and in areas expose to trade winds..
The permanent Exclusion Zone which is about 395 m around the eruptive vents is always closed (Shouldn’t be Access) but the Zones (Zone A and B) beyond this area are opened (Could be Access) (See photo below).
This is another reminder to all visitors to observe this volcano away from the crater rim to avoid volcano activity related impacts.
See the safety map and Yasur visitors Fact-Sheet at the Vanuatu Geohazards website http://www.geohazards.gov.vu/index.php/resources.
