PNG Defense Force Soldiers call out for Ulavun Volcano disaster

PNG Prime Minister James Marape has informed Parliament this morning that the PNG Defense Force has been called up to engage in relief efforts in the Mount Ulavun volcano disaster.

He says the national government is waiting on authorities on the ground to put forward a relief response plan which it will act on to mobilize support for the people.

West New Britain Regional MP, Sasindran Muthuvel says more than 10-thousand people have been displaced, but there could be more if proper assessments are done.

Mr Marape says natural disasters cannot be avoided because PNG sits in the Pacific Ring of Fire.

He also highlighted that there are reports of flooding affecting Milne Bay, Central and Gulf provinces, while the Manam volcano is also reported to be spewing ash yet again.
