Volcanoes/Earthquakes: Vanuatu is situated in an active seismic zone and is prone to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, which sometimes may be followed by tsunamis. The risk level of Vanuatu’s many active volcanoes can change on a daily basis. In January 2010, Vanuatu authorities increased the alert level for the volcano Mount Yasur on the island of Tanna, to “very high level of activity." Authorities advise tourists not to visit the area. Travelers to volcanic areas should contact the Department of Geology and Mines at 22423 to obtain information about the activity of a volcano, and should also contact the Vanuatu Tourism Office prior to traveling to areas where volcanic activity may occur. Detailed information about earthquakes is available from the National Earthquake Information Center of the United States Geological Survey at earthquake.usgs.gov... If a natural disaster occurs, follow the advice of local authorities.
