Volcanic activity has increased since the eruption began on the island-volcano Kadovar, according to news from the Rabaul Volcano Observatory communicated through the press and social networks (we can regret the lack of direct information from the observatory).
The ash plume has become darker and bulky. The ash covers 50 to 60% of the island and ash falls over 10 km, on December 7 in a sector west / north-west, are confirmed by VAAC Darwin forecasts and satellite images. The aviation code is orange.

The evolution of this andesitic volcano, with relatively thick lavas, augurs a growth of the dome followed by collapses and pyroclastic flows, or a violent explosive eruptive phase. Given the steepness of the slopes, landslides are possible, with tsunami generation.
