Tongariro Erupts Again!

Photo of Tongariro area but not the site of recent explosion.

Tongariro erupted again on Wednesday 21st November around 1.20pm. A large plume of ash 6000m high can be seen very close to where it erupted last time on August 7th.

To find out more about it go to NZ Herald.

Last week, GNS scientists indicated that Ruapehu might erupt within the next couple of weeks or months too.  They're watching all the volcanic signs very closely.
