Japan on the edge: Volcano erupts for 2nd time

About

Following the devastating earthquake and tsunami, the Shinmoedake Volcano in southwestern Japan has erupted for the second time this year, sending ash and rock into the sky. The volcano, which is located in the Kiri-shima range in southwestern Japan, erupted after two weeks of inactivity and sent ash and rocks up to four kilometers into the air. The tsunami occured mainly in the north of Japan, so officials are not yet certain whether the eruption was a result of the massive earthquake that rocked the north of Japan.
