Volcanic Alert Level for Taupō Volcano raised to Alert Level 1
GeoNet have raised the Volcanic Alert Level for Taupō Volcano to Volcanic Alert Level 1 (minor volcanic unrest).
While this is a change from ‘no volcanic unrest ‘to ‘minor volcanic unrest’, we’re reassured that scientists are not unduly concerned. The chance of an eruption at Taupō remains very low in any one year. They are monitoring the area and keeping us informed and we know they’re keeping a close eye on what’s happening.
Despite the move to alert level one, Taupō is still open for business and we continue to look forward to welcoming visitors here from around New Zealand and overseas.
