Dramatic video of Japanese volcano erupting

volcano eruption, japanese volcano erupts again

A volcano in southern Japan – which featured in a James Bond film – has erupted again, damaging homes in surrounding towns.

After the latest eruption at Shinmoe Peak, the Japan Meteorological Agency has extended the exclusion zone around the crater to 2.4 miles.

Experts fear lava could now spill out of the crater as pressure increases from within the the volcano’s lava dome, leading to further blasts.

A 92-year-old woman suffered cuts to her face and hands caused by flying glass from shattered windows.

    I lived in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius for three years. It smoked all the time and once in a while it would rumble. It was unnerving.
