More information on White Island
Ash was seen rising from the volcano off the coast of the Bay of Plenty at 10.23am
The volcanic risk for White Island has been raised to level two – meaning a minor eruption is in progress.
GNS Science volcanologist Craig Miller said the eruption could be part of a sequence leading to a bigger volcanic event.
White Island has experienced several minor eruptions over the last year and volcanologists have found magma “very near” to the surface of the volcano.
Miller said an eruption was unlikely to affect the Bay of Plenty – though it would be dangerous to anyone on White Island.
