New Zealand’s White Island volcano erupted suddenly early evening on Monday, engulfing a group of visitors observed walking on the crater moments before.

The National Emergency Management Agency of New Zealand released a statement earlier, “moderate volcanic eruption is occurring at White Island and is hazardous in the immediate vicinity of the volcano.”

Live feeds from cameras inside the volcano showed more than six people walking inside the rim at 14:10 local time before images went dark when the eruption occurred.
