Mt Ruapehu, the Giant - Sleeping, AROUSED. 27 September, 2007

Reference Number: DCDL-0004055

Shows Mount Ruapehu in the background and in the foreground a grassy area with a sign indicating that the giant is aroused. Refers to the eruption of Ruapehu 25 September 2007. Erupted for seven minutes without warning about 8.15pm. Multiple lahars were generated in several catchment areas, including Whakapapa ski-field. Described as a "blue-sky" eruption, coming without warning, and went "from nothing to full-on in about a minute." It was similar to eruptions in 1969 and 1975, but smaller than those in 1995 and 1996. Generated a 2.8-magnitude volcanic quake.
