Japan's Shinmoedake Volcano Erupts; Dozens of Flights Grounded

Shinmoedake Volcano is seen erupting in Miyazaki Prefecture on Kyushu Island Japan

The volcano billowed smoke and ash from smaller eruptions last week, local media reported, but the new series of eruptions on the country's southern island of Kyushu was a significant increase of potentially unsafe activity, Japan's Meteorological Agency said in an Associated Press report. Several other Japanese volcanoes have had smaller eruptions.

On Tuesday, it eventually erupted and threw ash thousands of metres into the sky, prompting the cancellation of flights to and from a nearby airport.

Japan has a total of 110 active volcanoes which are continuously being monitored by the Japan Meteorological Agency. The ring - a tracing of volatile tectonic plate activity in an arc from southern Chile up to Alaska and Japan and tapering off at New Zealand - is home to 90 percent of the world's earthquakes.

The agency also warned about the possibility of pyroclastic flows within a similar distance from Mt. Shinmoe's crater, as well as falling ash and broken glass if there's a subsequent powerful explosion which causes an air shock. They can destroy buildings, forests and ignite fires.

Volcanoes in Japan have been deadly in recent years.

The Shinmoedake volcano erupted Tuesday on Japan's southernmost island of Ryushu.

Following a small eruption on Thursday last week, active volcanic tremors had been detected before the volcano erupted explosively on Tuesday afternoon, according to the agency.

Back in January, a member of Japan's military was struck and killed when rocks from a volcanic eruption rained down on skiers at a mountain resort in central Japan.
