10/29/2011 -- Series of large scale ash eruptions occurring at Sakurajima Volcano in Japan

Recently, the Japanese agency which monitors Sakurajima Volcano in Japan, issued an elevated alert for the area around the volcano -- the threat of a large scale eruption (with damaging pyroclastic flow / ash fall). Eruptions occur daily at this location -- this is a rather large eruption of ash from the main caldera. Recent activity at the volcano has caused a NEW vent to steam behind the main caldera which erupts in this video. Mirrored with permission from: www.youtube.com
