James Bond film (You Only Live Twice) is selling its news in Japan in a true sense. Japan is justly tagged as a high scorer in the proportion of earthquakes and volcanoes. On Wednesday, powerful out-breaks at a Volcano in Kyushu got crazy by spewing its ash into the air. Luckily no injuries have been accounted as a consequence of this so-called “explosion”. According to Japan’s Weather agency report, the spiral of the burst exceeded the height of 3,000 meters. Before this out-break, Mt.Shinmoedake has showed 29 eruptions and gained this height for the very first time since 3rd of April in 2011. The volcano is showing heavy grayish figures of smoke and hot red lava moving to the brim, in a footage provided by Meteorological Agency. Many flights met their cancellations and delays at KOJ (Kagoshima) Airport on Wednesday. Authorities gave initial warnings to locals not to move towards the mount as massive spreading of ash deposits may harm the surroundings.
Surely, it is advisable not to plan vacations to the victimized area. Evacuation orders should be strictly followed. More than that wearing respiratory masks and covering your skin with a cloth or umbrella would save you from harmful effects of uncompromising ash. Blankets of ash on the roofs of cars roaming in Kirishima city is a heavy proof of this brutal spewing. While peeping into the past, Japan has experienced 110 active volcanic eruptions. It was observed in 2014, when in the month of September 63 people were eaten up by the worst volcanic activity on Mount Ontake (recorded as most awful in the time span of almost 90 years).
From the psychological point of view volcanoes occupy the residents’ minds in a very strange way. The feeling of having filth everywhere is really a great panic. An unmatchable fear of collapsing of home with severe effects of pyro-clastic flows can make people sick. Moreover, headaches or fatigue in healthy people and limited visibility due to heavy gases is another huge problem nowadays. On the positive side, it provides a rich farming soil. Beautiful scenery of volcanoes eruption throws a healthy effect on mind.
