Victims of volcano on Vanuatu are going home!

Hundreds of Ambaens forced out of their homes at the height of the Mount Manaro volcanic eruptions have started returning home.

Ambae Councillor Ken Vuvu says displaced people living in evacuation centres located in the east and north east have begun returning home over the Christmas and New Year period.

Vanuatu Daily Post reports that five truckloads transporting people back to Lolowai.

From Lolowai, villagers are picked up by private vehicles and water taxis and taken back to their villages.
