Challenge in Papua New Guinea getting eruption warnings to victims

11 Jan 2019, RNZI

The assistant director of Papua New Guinea's Rabaul Volcano Observatory has said that the early warning issued after this week's eruption on Manam Island reached the Madang Provincial administration, but getting it to isolated Manam was difficult. This challenge could prove problematic if the volcano unleashes a severe eruption.
