I cannot forget the sirens, how can I forget. When there’s an eruption you have the sirens that will sound to say: ‘evacuate, evacuate now’. That in itself is really something, you get goose bumps each time you hear this ‘evacuate, evacuate now’. You know it’s serious […] If you didn’t have a vehicle they would send a bus to collect people.

The roads were a nightmare. It was like when snow falls except the snow is ash, it doesn’t melt and you had to wear a mask, or a tissue, or something over your nose, and sunglasses to keep the ash out of your eyes, and have your head tied. It was really messy period that went on for a long time.
