The Alert Level for Tanna Volcano remains at Level 2.
This means that the Yasur activity has changed. Explosions become 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.
This is another reminder to all visitors to observe this volcano away from the crater rim to avoid volcano activity related impacts.
All communities, villages, visitors and travel agencies have to seriously consider this information.
The Department of Meteorology and Geohazards will continue to closely monitor this volcano activity. More information will be provided accordingly when necessary.
