Sakurajima Japan Eruption–’Just Another Day’ For Residents

In a surprise eruption that shook parts of southern Japan, Sakurajima ended an unusually long quiet phase in style. The stratovolcano, known for being one of the most active in the world, spewed a plethora of ash, magma and ball lightning into the sky, providing what could be one of the most notable displays of pyrotechnics seen from the volcano.

Active Volcano

Sakurajima is a set of multiple volcanoes in the Kagoshima prefecture of Kyushu, Japan. It is an active decade volcano, and has been erupting regularly since 1955.

Because of its unusually active nature, as well as the rather destructive nature of its eruptions—one of its eruptions connected the island volcano to Osumi Peninsula back in 1914—Sakurajima is the subject of plenty of volcanology studies.

To this end, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) has many cameras recording the activity of Sakurajima, and monitors the volcano on a regular basis.

Average Eruption

This eruption was not exactly unplanned for. The JMA and the city of Kagoshima regularly tracks any activity on the stratovolcano, and can predict to a relatively decent margin if there is any danger of an eruption from Japan’s Sakurajima.

As such, the eruption last February 5, 2016 was not exactly unexpected. The government had been preparing the city for an eruption since early 2015, and in fact considers Sakurajima’s eruption to be delayed. Kagoshima had been expecting the volcano to erupt in September of 2015.

This eruption, though flashy, is actually quite an average explosion from the volcano. There have been records of stronger explosions from Sakurajima, which has recorded major eruptions on average every three years within the past decade.

Residents Not Worried

Despite the active nature of the volcano, the residents of Kagoshima aren’t so worried. Sakurajima experiences plenty of minimal eruptions regularly. The city regularly conducts a yearly disaster drill in case of a major explosion, and there are safeguards in place to help reduce any casualties.

There have been none so far. Just to be safe, however, the JMA has increased the exclusion zone to around two kilometers from the area. The agency has also raised the alert status of the volcano to level 3.

Many experts believe that this explosion is the resumption of the volcano’s regular activity. Sakurajima has been quiet since late last year.

This eruption, however, has become one of the flashier displays in the history of Japan. Sakurajima’s eruption video can be viewed here, for those of you who want to see the volcano’s eruption as recorded by JMA’s many cameras.

Anjali Ramkissoon Statement: Doctor Uber Attacker And What She Has To Say About The Incident

A YouTube video went viral after a drunk woman hounded an Uber driver and trashed the car out of nowhere. The woman was identified as Anjali Ramkissoon, a 30-year-old fourth-year neurology resident at the Jackson Health System in Miami, according to the Daily Mail.

In the YouTube post, user Juan Cinco explained the incident: “We were on the phone with this uber driver while he pulled up to our location. Out of nowhere the girl in the video gets in the backseat of his car and won’t get out. We told the driver it was ok, to just cancel our ride, but he did not want to take her anywhere so he kept telling her get out.” She then went on to harass the driver and wreck the car for a while.

According to the Miami Herald, Ramkissoon was “removed from all clinical duties” with the Jackson Health System starting an investigation about the incident. “The outcome of the investigation will determine whether any disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including termination,” the Jackson Health System stated.

Uber then released a statement from WPTV about the incident:

“Uber expects everyone associated with the platform – both drivers and riders – to conduct themselves with a shared level of respect and common courtesy, and all forms of harassment and abuse are not tolerated. We have suspended the rider account of this individual as we investigate the incident.”

Ramkissoon declined to give a statement, regarding the statement, when NBC 6 visited her home in Miami. Fortunately, for Ramkissoon, the Uber driver was “too good of a person” and agreed to only take a cash settlement, instead of suing her for the countless of charges she could have been liable for. In the YouTube post, Juan Cinco explained that the payment was “only enough to pay his cellphone bill and maybe his cable bill,” instead of taking legal action.

Neighbours of Ramkissoon on the other hand, were surprised about the incident, insisting that the family is ‘nice’ and that Ramkissoon and her sister were sweet girls. The doctor has been hounded by netizens on social media, with some claiming she was clearly not drunk during the incident, but was obviously ‘high.’
