Eruption of Japan's Mount Ontake Leaves More Than 50 Dead



Mount Ontake, a 3,067-meter volcano in central Japan, erupted on Sept. 27, spewing smoke, ash and rocks. The day after the sudden eruption, rescue workers approached the peak of the mountain to search for survivors. More than 50 trekkers were confirmed dead in about a week, making the eruption the deadliest volcanic disaster in Japan since World War II.
