Officials on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean say the Piton de la Fournaise volcano has erupted.

The prefecture on the French island said the volcano erupted Thursday at 7:10 p.m. local time (1510 GMT) following several days of heightened seismic activity.The prefecture says in a statement the lava flow appeared stable, but access to the volcano and its surroundings has been indefinitely restricted.



The volcano is located in the southeast of the island. Most of the main population centers, including the capital, Saint-Denis, are clustered on the other half of the island.

The Piton de la Fournaise is a very active volcano and it often spews fumes and lava.
