Ambae (Vanuatu) - Report for 14 March-20 March 2018 - NEW

On 18 March the Vanuatu Geohazards Observatory (VGO) reported that eruptive activity at Ambae?s Lake Voui during February-March was similar to activity observed at the end of October 2017, but with more sustained ash emissions from explosions at the vent.
The ongoing ash-and-gas emissions were impacting local villages, prompting VGO to raise the Alert Level to 3 (on a scale of 0-5) and to warn residents and tourists to stay outside of the Danger Zone defined as a 3-km radius around the active vent in Lake Voui.
A news article noted that ashfall was reported in the NW, W, SW, and S parts of the island.
