Mount Aso Volcano in Japan Erupted on October, 20: No Victims Among the Population

Volcano Mount Aso in Japan Erupted on October, 20

No sooner had Japan recovered from the earthquakes on October 7 and 9, when a new catastrophe excited the whole world. 

Yesterday, a volcano erupted in the South of the country and causing gray smoke to rise 11,480 feet (3.5 km) and a pyroclastic flow that poured down the mountainside 0.8 miles (1.3 km). This is most likely a steam-induced or phreatic-type eruption because the pocket of water under the crater overheated and formed steam, which was decompressed in the process. At a distance of 2,950 feet (900 m) from the crater, volcanic rocks were blown away, causing ashfall in Miyazaki and Kumamoto prefectures. The meteorological agency warns that the danger has not yet passed and warns residents and tourists to avoid Mount Aso.

 This is not the first eruption of this volcano, as a result of the eruptions in 1953 and 1958, about 18 people died. The eruption of 2021 did not cause injury or death.
