A volcano erupted in Papua New Guinea on Friday, spurting ash tens of thousands of feet into the sky. Craig Earl-Spurr, a meteorologist at the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Center in Australia said the eruption of Mount Tavurvur on the island of New Britain began early Friday. The volcano spewed a thick tower of ash that reached as high as 60,000 feet above sea level. The volcano is situated only a few kilometers from the township of Rabaul. In 1994, Tavurvur erupted at the same time as nearby Mount Vulcan, destroying Rabaul.
