People living in or near the affected ashfall areas should:

-When indoors, close all windows and doors to limit the entry of volcanic ash
-If caught in volcanic ashfalls: Wear a dust mask or use a cloth handkerchief over your nose and mouth; protect your eyes by wearing goggles. Wear eyeglasses, NOT contact lenses as fine ash will get under the lens
-Listen to the radio and/or TV for further assessment and updates
-Effects of a volcanic eruption can be experienced many kilometres from a volcano
