Mount Ontake
Posted 9/28/14 , edited 9/28/14
Mount Ontake, or Ontake-San, one of the larger active volcanoes in Japan, erupted yesterday at about 11:53. Right now the death toll is around 34 people, and Prime Minister Abe is sending out the military to help with search and rescue, and also help the stranded hikers.

Japan has quite a lot of volcanoes, and it's located on what's called "The Ring of Fire". This is the second natural disaster to hit Japan in the last 3 years, the other being the obviously horrific Tokohu Earthquake in March 2011.

I think volcanoes erupting isn't that uncommon, but this is deadly, which makes it a different situation. It erupted without warning too, and this time of year is volcano hiking season across Japan because of the autumn views they can get.
