First known eruption of Kadovar volcano in Papua New Guinea prompts evacuation of 500 people after sending a column of ash 7000 feet in the air

http://strangesounds.org/2018/01/kadovar-volcano-first-known-eruption-papua-new-guinea-evacuation-pic

More than 500 people living on Kadovar Island, Papua New Guinea have been evacuated by boats following the first eruption of Kadovar volcano in known history at 12:00 local time Friday, January 5, 2018 or at 02:00 UTC Jan. 6. The volcanic ash cloud was reaching an altitude of 2.1 km (7 000 feet) above sea level. The Aviation Color Code for the volcano was raised to Orange. 50 – 60 percent of the island is already covered by lava. The latest activity at this volcano was a period of heightened thermal phenomena in 1976.

Great find!
Is the count included anywhere there, or did you have to count them yourself?
Is a brief listing available? (one line per volcano)

I should probably have checked them before posting.
There are 36 presented as being erupting. I can go to the site and double check.

Nearly 15,000 flee after volcano roars to life in Philippines

The Philippines’ most active volcano rumbled back to life Sunday with lava rising to its crater in a gentle eruption that has prompted authorities to evacuate thousands of villagers.

LEGAZPI, PHILIPPINES—Glowing red lava was rolling down the slopes of a Philippine volcano as authorities maintain a warning of a possible hazardous eruption.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Tuesday morning the lava was quietly flowing in some places but at times Mount Mayon was erupting like a fountain. Lava had advanced up to 2 kilometres from the crater, and ash was falling nearby.

Nearly 15,000 people have fled the danger zone already. The alert level remained three on a scale of five, indicating an increased prospect of a hazardous eruption “within weeks or even days.”

Lava flowed at least half a kilometre down a gully from the crater on Monday morning and ash clouds appeared mid-slope as lava fragments rolled down, said Renato Solidum, who heads the volcano institute. It was hard to track down the lava flow given the thick clouds shrouding the volcano.

Molten rocks and lava at Mayon’s crater lit the night sky Sunday in a reddish-orange glow despite the thick cloud cover, leaving spectators awed but sending thousands of residents into evacuation shelters.

Disaster-response officials said more than 14,700 people have been moved from high-risk areas in three cities and four towns in an ongoing evacuation. People in the danger area have put up huge white crosses in the past in their neighbourhoods, hoping to protect their lives and homes.
