Janine Krippner, a New Zealand-based volcanologist with the Smithsonian Global Volcanism Programme, told Business Live: “When the vent is below water, nothing can tell us what will happen next.” Ms Krippner said they are concerned about the lack of information they have. The eruption was so powerful that space satellites captured ash clouds and an atmospheric shockwave radiated out from the volcano at close to the speed of sound. A British woman is missing after being swept away in the natural disaster on Saturday and up to 80,000 people, there could be affected. Today, The New Zealand Defence Force sent an aircraft to “assist in an initial impact assessment of the area and low-lying islands”.
