Man killed as volcanic ash triggers flooding in Vanuatu

A truck driver who was driving at night was caught in flash flooding during heavy rain.

A police search party found his body under the vehicle.

The Daily Post reports the creek had accumulated sand and ash after the Manaro volcano eruptions.

The Department of Meteorology and Geohazards is warning people on the island to be careful crossing creeks as the ash-filled waterways could trigger more flash flooding.
