A volcano has gone in the eruption on White Island in New Zealand on Monday. The volcanic island is located about 50 kilometers from the east coast of New Zealand’s north island.

More people are feared to be injured, inform the authorities according to AFP news agency.

New Zealand’s prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, informs, according to the news agency Reuters, that 100 people were on or near the island when the volcano erupted.

Several persons “may not be ready for,” she says.

the New Zealand national disaster response warns that it is dangerous to reside in the vicinity of the volcano, also known as Whakaari.

the Volcano went after several weeks of rumblings erupted on Monday afternoon shortly after two o’clock local time.

the Newspaper New Zealand Herald writes that “several people have reportedly critically injured”. This has not been confirmed from official team.

Several rescue helicopters are on the way to the site, and there has been created a katastrofecenter at Whakatane Hospital.

In november raised the the authorities the alert level for an outbreak on the White Island for the two, because researchers had observed the increasing volumes of sulphur dioxide – a principal indicator of rising magma deep inside the volcano.

on Monday afternoon the alert level was raised to four, which is the second-highest step on the scale.

It writes the New Zealand Herald.

White Island is a so-called stratovolcano, which is built up of many layers of lava.
