This story from the Mirror, actually is one of the more complete stories. No more survivors expected to be found after New Zealand volcano disaster: Police issue warning after five people were confirmed dead and more than 20 unaccounted for following eruption.
- White Island, located 29 miles off New Zealand’s North Island, erupted at 2.11pm local time on Monday
- Five people have been confirmed dead, 18 injured, and more than 20 people are thought to be missing
- Police say there have been ‘no signs of life’ from the island, and no more survivors are expected to be found

The key takeaway seems to be that there was no warning.
This video from Today is fairly complete, and shows a portion of the cellphone video recorded by an American, whose family had just ended a tour of the island.
