Mud volcano erupts Taiwan’s Pingtung County, inundating farmland

A mud volcano erupted in Taiwan’s Pingtung County on July 11, 2023, ejecting steam and mud from several vents up to 2 m (6.5 feet) in the air.

The eruption lasted about 4 hours, inundating nearby farmland and making a mess near a local temple.

This is the second eruption of this mud volcano in 2023. Although no one was hurt, local residents say the cleanup will be pricey.
