The ash feels like fine sand grit all over your body when you go outside. Houghton had to sweep our solar panels off a few times a day so our batteries would continue to charge.http://www.geohazards.gov.vu/index.php/hazards-updated-events/volcano-alert-status. Thanks for your prayers!

Two weeks or so ago we had a fair-sized earthquake that caused a new vent to open up at our volcano. Up to this point we've never gotten ash-fall here in the north of our island (Ambrym), but do occasionally get acid rain that has affected mangoes and yams, as well as some other crops. With the new vent, we experienced a few days of ash-fall that in just a few hours covered up our tanks and plants (see photos).
