Japan’s Mount Shindake Erupts [Video]

Japanese residents fled the southern island of Kuchinoerabu on Friday following the eruption of Mount Shindake which was captured on video.

Mount Shindake spewed black clouds 5.6 miles high as authorities evacuated the island.

140 Americans were evacuated from the island, with one man reportedly suffering minor burns.

“There became a really loud, ‘dong’ sound of an explosion,” Nobuaki Hayashi, a native village chief, advised NHK, “and then black smoke rose, darkening the sky … It smells of sulphur.”
