- Manam volcano, located on Manam island, 12 km off from Papua New Guinea's (PNG) north coast, erupted. An explosion of Manam generated an ash plume reaching approximately 3,000 metres high.
- A series of eruptions over the past 15 years has forced many people from the island to mainland PNG. Displaced Manam Islanders continue to struggle for resettlement on the mainland.
