TOKYO, Japan: Japan has issued its highest alert and begun evacuations after a volcano erupted on a southern island.

Sakurajima volcano, located on the island of Kyushu, erupted on July 24, resulting in immediate evacuations throughout the region.

The Japan Meteorological Agency announced that the volcano erupted at 8:05 p.m. local time.
Footage from the agency’s surveillance camera showed a cloud of smoke or ash rising from the volcano.

Further, the meteorological agency declared a Level 5 alert — the highest level — as it called for residents to leave the area.

Additionally, those living in Kagoshima Prefecture and Kagoshima City were advised to maintain caution.

There have been no reports of injuries.

Nearby is the Sendai nuclear power plant, however, Japan’s nuclear regulator said there have been no ground tremors or irregularities within the plant’s vicinity.

The American space agency NASA reports that Sakurajima is one of Japan’s most active volcanoes, having erupted repeatedly in past decades.

Its last eruption was in January 2022, spewing clouds of ash into the atmosphere.
