Volcano eruptions in Papua New Guinea (PNG) forced 15,000 villagers in the northeastern part of the country to move, according to several aid agencies on Sunday.

Mount Ulawun on the island of New Britain, northeastern PNG erupted suddenly on Wednesday, thus spewing 18 kilometers of dust into the air.

Meanwhile, the mountain near Manam also broke out last Friday, spewing pistachles (rock fragments and volcanic gas).

There were no reports of death or injuries, but the volcano eruption destroyed many homes, farms and wells that caused the population to cut food and water supplies, while smoke was affecting domestic flights.

The Red Cross and International Crescent Society (IFRC) announced that 3,775 residents living near Mount Manam and 11,047 in Ulawun were transferred to several temporary relief centers on Sunday.

It is understood that volcanic dust with many fine particles such as glass can cause permanent damage to the lungs leading to disease or death.
