Papua New Guinea - Manam volcano eruption

- ECHO Daily flash of 27/03/2020

  • Manam volcano, located on Manam island, 12 km off from Papua New Guinea's (PNG)  north coast, erupted. An explosion of Manam generated an ash plume reaching approximately 3,000 metres high.
  •  A series of eruptions over the past 15 years has forced many people from the island to mainland PNG. Displaced Manam Islanders continue to struggle for resettlement on the mainland.
