Earth Volcano Eruption in Papua New Guinea


Shockwave Hits a Boat 13 Seconds After Eruption

October 3, 2014The eruption of Mount Tavurvur volcano on August 29th, 2014. Captured by Phil McNamara.A few weeks ago, a very small volcano erupted off of the coast of Papua, New Guinea.When Mount Tavurvur erupted, the shock wave could be clearly seen sweeping down the side of the volcano. Luckily, a person on a boat caught the whole thing on video.But the most impressive feature of the video is not the appearance of the shock wave, but rather its sound. It hits the boat 13 seconds after the eruption and sounds like a bomb exploding.

Watch the spectacular video (1 min.):
