SYDNEY, Australia – Some residents of a remote Papua New Guinea island were preparing on Tuesday, November 21, to evacuate from the vicinity of an erupting volcano that shot a cloud of ash into the sky forcing the cancelation of some flights.
Teams had been sent to the Mount Ulawun area on New Britain island to coordinate an evacuation after it began erupting on Monday, state broadcaster NBC PNG reported senior disaster management official Clement Bailey as saying.
Flights from the island’s Hoskins airport had been cancelled, the broadcaster said, adding the volcano was still erupting.
