    Mt Ruapehu eruption alarms set off by multiple earthquakes

    Mt Ruapehu's ski area eruption alarms have been set off by multiple earthquakes rocking the central North Island



    The earthquakes combined with strong wind gusts set off the eruption detection system and triggered an alert forcing those on the mountain to seek safety indoors.

    The ski area Facebook page says that these were false positives, and there is no cause for concern.

    GNS science, the Department of Conservation and the ski field are all monitoring the situation.
