Volcano Evacuees Briefly Return Home For 1st Time Since Eruption

KAGOSHIMA, JAPAN - June 1: Some residents of a remote island in Kagoshima, southwestern Japan, who evacuated following a volcanic eruption Friday, briefly returned to their homes on Monday, as the meteorological agency continues to monitor the island's volcano Mt. Shindake. About 30 people, including 10 residents and municipal officials, traveled on fishing boats to Kuchinoerabu Island, 1,000 kilometers southwest of Tokyo, to inspect their homes and farms, unplug electrical appliances to prevent fires and give water to livestock. Their two-hour stay was closely watched by Self-Defense Force and police helicopters, while a Japan Coast Guard patrol vessel stayed nearby in case of any emergency. In Tokyo, the meteorological agency said it had confirmed white volcanic smoke emerging from the 626-meter Mt. Shindake on Sunday and Monday. Although the white color means there was no volcanic ash in the smoke and that the eruptions have stopped, the agency believes the halt is only temporary and warns of possible eruptions of the same level as Friday's.
