More than 250 hikers are trapped on Japan’s Mount Ontake today after the volcano’s first eruption since 2007. Japanese news outlets are reporting at least one death, though it appears there could be several more. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe dispatched the army to save those hikers stranded in mountain lodges.

At least one hiker was able to record the eruption and the resulting plume of ash.
