Volcanic ash advisory for Northern Marianas residents

10:18 am on 7 April 2005

Authorities in the Northern Marianas are closely monitoring a violent eruption at Anatahan volcano which sent a high plume of ash south east of the island chain.

Ash has been reported falling over Guam and skies darkened over Saipan yesterday.

A volcanic ash advisory remains in effect for Guam, but the international airport is open.
