Video: Sakurajima volcano erupts

Sakurajima Volcano erupts violently just a few miles away from nuclear power plant.

Japan’s Sakurajima volcano has erupted, sending lava flowing down its slope and spewing ash and stones into the night sky. Dramatic pictures of the fiery spectacle also show flashes of volcanic lightning – thought to be caused by friction between ash particles and gases.

The volcano, in the southern Kagoshima prefecture, has been showing increased activity since August when locals were told to prepare for a large eruption and possible evacuation. However, there were no immediate reports of injuries in the area near the 1,117m volcano, home to some 4,000 people.
