Bulletin N°3- Ambrym Activity
VANUATU VOLCANO ALERT BULLETIN N°3- AMBRYM ACTIVITY
Monday, March 2nd 2015

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

Volcanic activity at Ambrym has been decreasing slightly but remains unrest. As such its volcanic Alert is lowered from Level 3 to level 2. The danger remains on areas in proximity to and around the volcanic craters (Benbow, Maben-Mbwelesu, Niri-Mbwelesu and Mbwelesu) and on volcanic ash and gas prone areas exposed to trade winds.

 

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 are recommended to seriously consider this information.

 

The Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-Hazards Department will continue to monitor this volcano activity until it becomes stable and will provide information accordingly when necessary.

Bulletin N°1- Lopevi Activity
VANUATU VOLCANO ALERT BULLETIN N°1 - LOPEVI ACTIVITY
Monday, December 15th, 2014

LOPEVI VOLCANO
16°30"S 168°21"E, Summit Elevation 1413m
Current Vanuatu Volcano Alert Level: Level 1
 

Observations and analysis done by the Geo-Hazards observatory in beginning of December 2014, showed that the volcanic activity at Lopevi has increased dramatically in a very short time span. From visual and satellite observations, it is clear that the volcano is in an eruption phase. As such the volcano’s Alert Level has moved from Level 0 to Level 1. The island of Lopevi is now a “NO GO ZONE” until further notice.

 

Therefore, all communities, villages, visitors and travel agents are recommended to seriously consider this information.

 

The Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-Hazards Department will continue to monitor this volcano’s activity and provide information accordingly when necessary.
