Landslides and steam emissions triggered by earthquakes

Landslides and steam emissions on Wurlali volcano were triggered by MM IV-V earthquakes near the [island]. About 4,000 people fled the area, and one of the evacuees died of shock. Staff from VSI observed small landslides and cracks in house walls. There was no volcanic activity observed following the landslides, but the usual white plumes continued to rise 30-50 m above the crater. Tectonic earthquakes were continuing at rates of 14-32/day on 8 February.
