Massive Volcano Erupts In Japan- Sakurajima Volcano Eruption Largest In Decades

Before It’s News – Susan Duclos

The Sakurajima Volcano, one of Japan’s most active volcanoes, erupted on Sunday sending plumes of ash thousands of feet into the air, in what is being called it’s largest eruption in decades. Reports state that the smoke plume eventually reached a height of 5,000 meters (approximately 16,000 feet), according to the Kagoshima Local Meteorological Observatory. reports the “eruption is the latest in a string of recent natural calamities in Japan. A deadly, record-shattering heat wave has gripped Japan most of this month. Northern Japan suffered deadly landslides earlier this month and has seen additional heavy rainfall and floods in more recent days.”

Video from Japan’s FNN television network shows the initial moment of the eruption in the first video below.

  1. Japan is just one doomed island. It’s too bad. I love Japan and spent 6 months there years ago. The people are great and the girls are mostly beautiful (some have bad teeth, though). It’s a whole other world on that island. Sometimes like being in a strange fantasy world. For those you who have been there, I’m sure you know what I mean. I still have some friends there and feel sorry for the shit they have to go through due to the Fukushima incident. However, I will probably never go back to that country ever again now that it’s basically a contaminated wasteland. As if they don’t have enough problems as it is with Fukushima, they now have an active volcano erupting. At least it wasn’t Mt. Fuji, I guess.
