Volcano Erupts in Southern Japan, Smoke Seen 5,000 Feet Above the Crater
Flight and Train Cancellations Follow One Day After Japanese Volcano Comes Back to Life

By AKIKO FUJITA
TOKYO, Jan. 27, 2011

A Japanese volcano in the southern Kyushu region erupted Wednesday, leaving fields in nearby towns coated with ash and prompting limited voluntary evacuations overnight.

Agency volcanologist Sei Iijima said the eruption did not pose a threat to nearby cities, and a major eruption was not imminent, as of now.

Here's another one to watch from Dutchsinse on FB:

Michael Janitch
lower left corner video shows extended earthquake tremor activity at sakurajima.. thats not the wind.. those cameras are inside a fixed enclosure designed not to move in high winds.. we've seen gale force winds at this location with no movement on the cameras.. therefore it MUST be seismic......

looks to me like a large eruption of steam.. not your normal sakurajima ash cloud or lava eruption.. and with the amount of seismic tremors going on.. im guessing an aquifer or large underground pocket of water is being impacted by the magma coming up ! watch out for larger eruptions at this volcano over the next few days.. been rather quiet lately at sakurajima !

Fuji time bomb: Volcano to erupt under pressure

Japanese scientists predict Mt. Fuji will blow due to new tectonic pressures that are higher than when the volcano last erupted more than 300 years ago. Estimates say the eruption will affect more than 400,000 people and cost over $30 billion.

The National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention has issued a warning that Japan’s 9.0 magnitude undersea quake last year, plus an aftershock four days later near Mt. Fuji, has created large pressure on the volcano’s magma chamber, which could lead to an eruption.

Mt. Fuji has already been classified as an active volcano, but scientists revealed new readings that show that the current pressure is at 1.6 megapascals, nearly 16 times higher than that required to trigger an eruption (0.1 megapascals).

It is "not a small figure", Kyodo News quotes lead volcanologist on the case as saying.

However, no signs of an eruption have so far been detected.

Nevertheless, “it’s possible for Mt. Fuji to erupt even several years after the 2011 earthquake, therefore we need to be careful about the development,” a team researcher stated.
