Erupción de un volcán en Papúa Nueva Guinea

November 21, 2023 - Algunos residentes de una isla remota en Papúa Nueva Guinea se preparan para evacuar luego que un volcán en erupción lanzó una nube de ceniza, obligando a la cancelación de algunos vuelos.

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.
