Lopevi: Warning of volcanic eruption

The Vanuatu Department of Meteorology and Geohazards (VMGD) yesterday warned of a possible impending eruption of the Lopevi volcano. The reason for the warning is a significant increase in seismicity under the volcano. Vapor emissions are observed. The alert level is 2/5 and an eruption can occur without further warning. It is recommended not to go to the edge of the crater. The image shows the current seismogram. In Vanuatu only the Yasur is active at the moment.
