Since mid-March, and although it is kept on alert level 3, the volcano Ambae / Manaro Voui has become even more active.
Its explosive eruptions generate more ashes than in the fall of 2017.
As a consequence, there are greater dangers for the population and the animals, the possibility of lahars due to the remobilization of ashes by the rains of recent cyclones, the pollution of the crops and the drinking water reserves.
New evacuations are planned due to this activity and major floods due to the cyclone.
