Taiwan's Wandan mud volcano erupted again on July 8, 2019, ejecting mud more than 1.5 m (4.9 feet) above the ground. The eruption continued into July 9 with flames coming out of the ground. Its last eruption was on December 24, 2019. 

Wandan Township government urgently dispatched an excavator to ward off the mud from the nearby cropland, the Taiwan English News reports.

The mud that had collected during the last year's eruption had not cleared and now the field is covered with mudflow, affected armers said, adding that they hope the government will make a system of subsidies.   

The eruption, now accompanied by flames, continued into July 9, 2019.

This volcano erupts at intervals between 6 months to 2 years at various places inside the radius of 2 km (1.2 miles) near the border of Wandan and Xinyuan townships.
