Shinmoedake in kyushu island in Japan is erupting. Here is a nice recent image livedoor.2.blogimg.jp...
This is the same one people talked about on the page 3 (kirishima eruption) ^^ .. just add some more details
Article in japanese: www.yomiuri.co.jp...
The eruption started at a small scale 19th January, and then 3.41pm at 27th had an explosive eruption and turned into a mid-scale eruption with a lot
of smoke. The smoke has reached to 3000 meters height. Volcanic ash has reached around 7000 hectares ruining agricultural land, and about 5cm diameter
stones have landed 5km from the volcano breaking windows from cars and office buildings. Last time Shinmoedake erupted 52 years ago.
