Seismologists from New Zealand are extremely concerned about the fact that the White Island volcano, located 48 km from the North Island of New Zealand, significantly intensified in the last couple of days. In the hot lake volcano began to show signs of hard hydrothermal activity.
Gas and steam vigorously foamed surface of the lake, just as the rising lava dome in the crater. Incidentally, the White Island lava dome appeared in late November to early January, and his condition was stable. On the slopes of the volcano has had time to settle down a decent amount of rainfall from the bowels of the White Island. These manifestations can only tell that the volcano could soon erupted. The increase in the volcanic activity observed from the end of last year and is fairly constant.
