MOUNT BUAPEHU ACTIVITY O.C, WANGANUI, this day. One of its noisiest outbursts to date was provided by Mount Ruapehu on Saturday night, Sunday and Monday. The activity could not be seen from the Chateau Tongariro for the first two days because of heavy cloud, but when dawn came on Monday with a clear sky Ruapehu was observed to be steaming vigorously. Weather conditions prevented climbers from observing the activity. A fresh fall of snow occurred on the mountain and round the lower slopes and it lay to a depth of about a foot at the Chateau. The fall, however, was not heavy enough to block roads in the district.
