White Island erupting: One person dead, 'likely' to be more, people unaccounted for in Bay of Plenty

At least one person is dead after Whakaari/White Island erupted today, and "a number" of people are still unaccounted for.

One fatality has been confirmed and there will likely be more, National Operation Commander Deputy Commissioner John Tims told a press conference at 6.35pm today.

"At this stage it is too dangerous for police and rescue to go onto the island ... the island is currently covered in ash and volcanic material," he said.

"We know the urgency to get back to [the] island," he said

watching the news this morning and the reporter quoted a volcanologist who suggested that the volcano was just clearing its throat and that he expected a bigger eruption in a week or so ......... at least no one will be on the the island by then hopefully
