Mt Ruapehu unrest
Mt Ruapehu's crater lake is steaming this morning after 3 earthquakes in the last 24 hours below it. Last night's 2.2 quake at 7:03pm was located 3 km below the volcano's peak within the magma chamber.
GeoNet elevated the alert level at the volcano to level 2 within the last 6 days, as moderate to heightened volcanic unrest has increased. More information on that change in levels at https://www.geonet.org.nz/vabs/2eRQvDWg31q0luE4H2McoY
