Vol­cano erupt­ing for first time in six years

Toronto Star - - WORLD -

A vol­cano in south­west­ern Ja­pan is erupt­ing for the first time in six years, spew­ing ash over nearby farms, cities and towns.

Street clean­ers swept ash from streets, and farm­ers used leaf blow­ers to clear the grow­ing piles of ash from the tops of their green­houses.

On Thurs­day, an ash plume rose 2,000 me­tres from the crater, the Ja­pan Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Agency said.
