PNG Papua New Guinea
The Kadovar volcano, previously considered dormant, has erupted for the first time in known history. . As of 6th of January 2017, over half of the island was covered in volcanic products. The darkening colour of the ash indicates that is a high potential for the eruption to become explosive. Due to the steepness of the volcano, there is a high risk for landslides. In case of an explosion, tsunamis can also be expected to affect Kadovar and the nearby islands.
