Volcano erupts again in southwestern Japan
Mount Shinmoe in southwestern Japan erupted again on Wednesday morning, sending an ash cloud one kilometer into the air.
This is the 1st time in over two months that smoke from the volcano has risen to over 1,000 meters. On April 18th the ash cloud rose to 2,000 meters.
A weather observatory in Kagoshima Prefecture says smoke is moving toward the north of the mountain. It's advising residents to stay alert for falling rocks and ash.
Mount Shinmoe is in the Kirishima range and straddles Kagoshima and Miyazaki prefectures. It began erupting in January.

Stay alert for falling rocks?.........
Okay, but I’ll get a helluva crick in my neck from walking around staring up in the sky.............
How often do we see volcanic activity and pressure shifts in the earth trigger or lead to earthquakes in the coming days?
Did that happen in April in Japan?
Shinmoe. You know it.
In this case, earthquake happened first. The volcanic eruption was said to be not related to the quake. At least that’s what they said at the time.
Lions, tigers, and bears = oh my.
Volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and radiation = oh my, grab your behind and get the heck outta Dodge before the whole island gets tipped over.
