VOLCANIC eruptions and earthquakes in Asia and Alaska indicate that the Pacific Ring of Fire is active, the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) noted.
In a post on Twitter, UNISDR took note of the eruption of Mayon Volcano in the Philippines and Mount Kusatsu-Shirane in Japan, the magnitude 6 earthquake that struck Java Island in Indonesia Tuesday night, and the magnitude 7.9 earthquake that prompted a tsunami warning in Alaska.
