Mount Tavurvur Volcano Erupting in Papua New Guinea

bacobjee captured some impressive closeup footage of Mount Tavurvur on the island of New Britain, Papua New Guinea erupting on August 29th, 2014. The active volcano has erupted a number of times over the past century, including an eruption in 2006 and one particularly massive occurrence in 1937 alongside the nearby volcano Vulcan, which killed a combined 508 people. The video captures the initial eruption, a shockwave and some commentary by nearby viewers.

Holy…smoking toledos.
