Impressive.

The name of the volcano was not given though.

Asama is a possible candidate,(on record for a high death toll and burial of several villages) but it may be another volcano in Tohoku.

May see similar when Tohoku arc begins ro recompress following Rebound/long duration, mercalli X event of 2011 (relaxeation of crust + bloody great big tsunami). Likely @ Iwate & also Towada.

Will keep watching that space.

Have a nice day: Ag

Shibukawa is located at a central point (36°29′ N, 139°00′ E) of the Japanese Archipelago and is thus known as the Bellybutton of Japan (日本& #12398;お&#12408 ;そ, nihon no oheso). The city encompasses an area of 240.42 kmē.

To the west is Mount Haruna, and to the east is Mount Akagi. To the north are Mount Onoko and Mount Komochi. The Tone River flows from the north (between Mount Akagi and Mt. Komochi) southward through the city, while the Agatsuma River flows from the west (between Mt. Onoko and Mount Haruna), merging with the Tone River near the center of the city.

Thanks for the info.

Causative volcano will either be Haruna or Akagi.

You, too. Is it possible to nail the cause on one of them?

Iron arbor, a suicide in hot ash.

Ohh happy New year.

In the article the ex jap was facing the volcano that killed him.

If the article writers named the mountain it would nail down the culprit pat.

This one being a sad case of ommission of obvious detail in the reportage.

Have a nice day: Ag
