With windows rattling each time the Earth rumbled, weary Japanese evacuees lay jammed on the wooden floor of a community hall here Tuesday as a volcano threatened to erupt. More than 2,500 people on Miyakejima were evacuated Monday to the northern part of the island after intensifying earthquakes signaled that magma was moving toward the Earth's surface. Seismologists said underwater eruptions had apparently begun and warned that the activity could cause damage if it moved inland.

A newly reawakened volcano erupted Friday on a small island near Tokyo, spewing a massive column of gray-black ash five miles into the air. More than 2,000 people were ordered to evacuate their homes. It was the largest eruption from 2,686-foot Mount Oyama, which dominates the resort island of Miyake, since the volcano ended a 17-year slumber and began stirring last month.

After experts ruled that a major eruption was unlikely, 215 people who had been evacuated from villages near a volcano in northern Japan checked on their homes and farms Monday. Scientists believe that the volcanic activity on Mt. Usu on the northernmost main island of Hokkaido has stabilized, with water and magma mixing underground and causing steam to flow from numerous craters, Meteorological Agency official Akimichi Takagi said.
