Japanese Volcano Mount Shindake Erupts On Kuchinoerabu Island

TOKYO (AP) — A volcano erupted on a small island in southern Japan on Friday, and authorities ordered residents to evacuate the island.

Mount Shindake erupted about 10 a.m. (0100 GMT) in spectacular fashion, spewing towering black-gray clouds into the sky.

No injuries had been reported, although the Japan Meteorological Agency reported that pyroclastic flows from the volcano had reached the shore to the northwest.
