Lobenben volcano

Vanuatu’s Lobenben volcano remains at Level 1

The Ambae volcano activity is continuing at the low unrest level, consistent with the Volcanic Alert Level 1. 

VMGD said new scientific analysis suggest that the Ambae volcano activity is likely to continue at this level of minor unrest.

Volcanic hazards remain at the summit area and creeks (e.g. remobilization of remaining ash from 2017 and 2018 eruption).

Some volcanic hazards remain on Ambae Island and these are related to the presence of weak layers of volcanic ash remaining at the summit and elsewhere on the island.
