Mt Ontake Volcanic Eruption - September 27, 2014

On 27th September 2014, a little before noon, a volcano erupted in Central Japan, injuring some hikers. The JMA raised the alert to level 3 which implies Do not approach Volcano. Few hikers were injured and some were stranded. Some videos were uploaded by hikers who were caught unaware. 

Mt Ontake had last erupted in 2007. 

BBC website has aerial photos and videos on this link.

Living in Nagoya, we do not see any immediate threat but few websites had suggested that Nagoya could get some acidic ash over the next few hours.
