Thus approaching the volcano is not safe; it would be safer to view the volcano away from the 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 is closely monitoring the volcano’s activity. The next information on the status of the volcano’s activity will be issued when more information is available.
