KAGOSHIMA — The volcano island Sakurajima has had about 400 explosive eruptions so far this year, the most in 24 years, a local observatory said Friday, warning that activity might pick up.
The minor explosive eruptions reached the 400 threshold Thursday night, according to the Kagoshima Observatory in Kagoshima Prefecture. One expert said the recent activity is similar to what happened just before a major eruption in 1946.
