A partial evacuation of the population has been announced in two areas of Kagoshima Prefecture, located in close proximity to the Sakurajima volcano erupting on the island of Kyushu in Japan.

According to local media, we are talking about the movement of people living within a radius of three kilometers from the site of the eruption. It is noted that there are about a hundred inhabitants.

Recall that the active volcano Sakurajima became more active on Sunday morning. After that, the Japan Meteorological Agency raised the level of volcanic alert from the third to the fifth, the maximum level.

At present, there have been no reports of casualties, and authorities report that rocks and ash ejected from the crater flew up to two and a half kilometers away.

It is known that an emergency headquarters has already been formed, which will operate under the office of the Prime Minister of Japan.
