ثوران بركاني في بابوا غينيا الجديدة

November 21, 2023 - يستعد بعض سكان جزيرة بابوا غينيا الجديدة النائية للجلاء عن المنطقة المجاورة لثوران بركان أطلق سحابة من الرماد في الفضاء مما أدى إلى إلغاء بعض الرحلات الجوية.

Teams had been sent to the Mount Ulawun area on New Britain island to coordinate an evacuation after it began erupting on Monday, state broadcaster NBC PNG reported senior disaster management official Clement Bailey as saying.

Flights from the island's Hoskins airport had been cancelled, the broadcaster said, adding that the volcano was still erupting.

Papua New Guinea is on the Pacific Ring of Fire, a horse-shoe shaped band of volcanoes and fault lines circling the edges of the Pacific Ocean, Reuters said.
