New Zealand’s Taupo volcano, responsible for largest eruption in 5000 years, has alert level raised


Fears are rising that a massive New Zealand volcano could erupt after 700 small tremors rocked the site.

The Taupo volcano – which sits below the country’s biggest lake – exploded approximately 1800 years ago, firing more than 100 cubic kilometres of material into the air, in what is the world’s largest eruption in the last 5000 years.

GeoNet, who are responsible for the volcano alert system, said for the first time ever they have raised the Taupo volcano alert to level 1. 

The alert system has six escalating levels of unrest, with zero being the lowest threat.

In 2019, New Zealand’s White Island volcano – known as Whakaari – suddenly erupted killing 22 people, 14 of who were Australians, and seriously injured 25 tourists.
