Mount Sakurajima Volcano Erupts in Spectacular Fashion.

August 19, 2013 Mount Sakurajima Volcano Erupts in Southern Japan: Pictured above, volcanic smoke billows from Mount Sakurajima in Kagoshima, on the southern Japanese main island of Kyushu Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013 (AP).

The eruption of the 1,117-meter (3,665-foot) Mount Sakurajima near Kagoshima city took place around 4:30 pm (0730 GMT). A large amount of volcanic ash fell in the northern and central parts of the city, causing a delay in train services and temporary poor visibility, forcing car drivers to use their headlights. The eruption also resulted in a small flow of volcanic material up to about one kilometer (0.6 miles) from the crater. It was the 500th eruption this year of Sakurajima, which is about 950 kilometers (580 miles) southwest of Tokyo. The eruption lasted for about 50 minutes.  Links below for more:
