MT. RUAPEHU ACTIVITY

ASH, SMOKE AND EXPLOSIONS

WANGANUI, this day,

Since Saturday Mt. Ruapehu has broken all known records for smoke and ash production, this following a sudden increase in the intensity of crater activity. Black smoke yesterday was stretching approximately 10,000 feet into the sky before drifting away to the north. Members of the Auckland Tramping Club, who are spending a week in the district, state that there are also signs of abnormal activity in the crater on Tongariro. Both Tongariro and Ngauruhoe are discoloured with a powdery discharge from Ruapehu. About 3 a.m. on Sunday and again later there were tremendous explosions in the crater of Ruapehu, and residents over a wide area were awakened. The Chateau reported that glowing matter like sparks was flying from the crater.
