What we know so far

One person has been killed, and that figure is expected to rise, after a volcanic eruption on New Zealand’s Whakaari / White Island.
Up to 27 people are still unaccounted for and the island is too dangerous for police and rescue to access. Police deputy commissioner John Tims said there “are likely to be more” casualties.
Fewer than 50 people were on the island at the time of the eruption, and 23 have been taken off.
30 to 38 of those people were passengers on the cruise ship Ovation of the Seas, as confirmed by the CEO of the New Zealand Cruise Association.
Seven people, of the 23 taken off the island, are critically injured.
The eruption occurred about 2:11pm local time, 48km off the coast of the Bay of Plenty, on the north island.
Whakaari / White Island is New Zealand’s most active cone volcano, and is a popular tourist destination and scientific research site. It last experienced a short-lived eruption in 2016.
