A Vanuatu island is being absolutely evacuated for a 2d time as its volcano erupts once more.

The Manaro Voui volcano began spewing ash in recent days, prompting officers to order heaps of citizens on tiny Ambae island to go away immediately.

The volcano started rumbling in September last year. This led to the island’s first full evacuation.

Officials say this time that the volcano again presents a danger to life.

Foreign Minister Ralph Regenvanu tweeted that Friday’s evacuation was once obligatory. Citizens are being moved to neighbouring islands.

The volcano sits on the Pacific Ring Of Fireside, a geologically active house which experiences earthquakes ceaselessly and has loads of energetic volcanoes.
