Tongariro volcano sends up a steam plume
The lower profile North Island Tongariro volcano is producing a steam plume today, as temperatures continue to drop heading towards winter. When seasonal temperatures drop, the Te Maari crater from time to time can vent a steam plume which has been a continuing feature since Tongariro's Te Maari crater last erupted on 6th August and 21st November in 2012. The last seismic activity was recorded 8 days ago on 11th April.
