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.

Philippine Volcano Erupts, Causing 56,000 To Flee
January 23, 2018 12:56 PM ET
LAUREL WAMSLEY

Mount Mayon, the Philippines' most active volcano, erupted for eight minutes on Monday afternoon, spewing a 3-mile-tall column of debris and volcanic gas. It exploded at least five more times Monday night and Tuesday morning.
"The lava fountains reached 500 meters to 700 meters [1,640 feet to 2,297 feet] high and generated ash plumes that reached 2.5 kilometers to 3 kilometers [1.6 miles to 1.9 miles] above the crater," reported the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
The institute said two "explosion-type earthquakes" had occurred, as well as 18 tremor events — some of which sent forth fountains of lava. One of the lava flows advanced nearly 2 miles from the summit's crater.
Authorities raised the volcano's alert level to 4 out of a possible 5, indicating"intense unrest" and the possibility of a hazardous eruption within days. The alert extends the danger zone around Mayon to approximately 5 miles.

More than 56,000 people fled the surrounding areas and were taking shelter in evacuation camps, officials told the AP; the army and police were helping others move from their homes.

"We couldn't sleep last night because of the loud rumblings. It sounded like an airplane that's about to land," 59-year-old farmer Quintin Velardo told the AP at an evacuation center in Legazpi city.

The volcano erupted again while Velardo was being interviewed by the AP. "There it goes again," he said. "I tell my grandchildren to study hard so they can live elsewhere without a volcano to keep an eye on all your life."

Cedric Daep, a disaster response official in Albay province, told reporters that he had recommended electricity and water supplies be cut off, to discourage residents from returning to their homes.

"If pyroclastic flows hit people, there is no chance for life," Daep said, according to the AP. "Let us not violate the natural law, avoid the prohibited zone, because if you violate, the punishment is the death penalty."

Reuters reports that the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines said it had shut down the Legazpi airport because of falling ash, affecting both international and domestic flights.

Volcanic ash blanketed skies and plunged villages into darkness, the AP reports. Authorities told the wire service that more than 30,000 ash masks along with food, water and medicine are being distributed to evacuation centers, but that relief goods could run out if the eruptions continue and more supplies don't arrive on time.

Mayon's symmetrical conical shape makes it a popular destination for tourists, despite previous eruptions that have killed hikers.

On Tuesday, the Kusatsu-Shirane volcano in Japan erupted near a ski resort, expelling volcanic rock all over a busy ski slope.  One man was killed, and several people were injured.

With 10.5 million cubic meters of pyroclastic material deposits volatile Mount Mayon continued its heightened activity with 3 eruptions in the night

http://www.thebigwobble.org/2018/01/with105-million-cubic-meters-of.html

State volcanologists detected three eruption episodes overnight as restive Mayon Volcano continued its heightened activity.

In a report on Super Radyo dzBB on Sunday morning, Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) Director Renato Solidum Jr. was quoted as saying that the eruption episodes were recorded beginning early Saturday evening and until early Sunday morning. PHIVOLCS data showed that the lava fountaining events were detected at 6:22 p.m.
Saturday; 12:45 a.m. and 5:36 a.m. Sunday.

Due to thick clouds from bad weather condition around Mayon, the actual lava fountaining events were not seen but PHIVOLCS instruments have recorded the episodes.

While Mayon had fallen silent for 27 hours before the series of lava fountaining starting early Saturday evening, Solidum said that the temporary silence doesn't mean that restive Mayon is losing steam, but possibly it has changed its eruption style.

Underwater supervolcano could erupt without warning and kill 100 million people after scientists find a 6-mile wide lava dome growing off the coast of Japan
Japanese researchers have found evidence of a giant dome containing lava
The dome lies within the mostly submerged Kikai Caldera south of Kyushu Island
A researcher says the lava dome could kill up to 100 million people if it erupts
But the risk of a caldera eruption hitting Japan is just 1% in the next 100 years

A submerged volcano off the coast of Japan that erupted 7,300 years ago could be preparing to make a comeback. 

Scientists have discovered evidence of a giant dome of lava in the Kikai volcano's collapsed magma chamber.

They believe it contains about 32 cubic km (7.68 cubic miles) of magma, and distortions on its surface suggest the dome is growing.

Currently the dome is around  6.2 miles (10 kilometers) wide and 1,968 feet (600 meters) tall.
