After conducting several reconnaissance flights, Police said they believe anyone who could have been taken from the island alive was rescued during the initial evacuation, but did not say how many lives were unaccounted for.

在进行了几次侦察飞行之后,警方表示,他们相信在最初的疏散过程中可以救走任何可以从岛上被带走的人,但没有说明下落不明的人数。

Almost all of those rescued had sustained injuries, with many suffering severe burns, Police Deputy Commissioner John Tims said during a press conference seven hours after the volcano first erupted.
