From Wikipedia: "Ngauruhoe has erupted more than 70 times since 1839. It is no longer showing signs of any significant unrest and the Volcanic Alert Level has been reduced to zero (typical background activity).
A significant increase in earthquake activity in May 2006 prompted the alert level to be raised to one (signs of volcano unrest). Over the next two years GeoNet recorded an average of 5 to 30 earthquakes a day close to Ngauruhoe, though the maximum daily number was as high as 80."
