Part of our group on the Round-The-World tour at Sinabung
The eruption at the volcano continues. An expedition of our team is on location and observed near-continuous rockfalls and frequent pyroclastic flows caused by collapses on the lava flow reaching up to 4-5 km distance. The flows travel through two channels, on the south and to the north. ...more [read all]

Pyroclastic flow on Sinabung on 7 Oct (Volcano Alert @infoVolcano / Twitter)
Activity has picked up considerably at the volcano during the past days. Several pyroclastic flows (dangerous hot avalanches of fragmented lava and hot gasses) traveled down the SE (and some on the NE) flanks of the volcano, threatening again the closest inhabited areas to the S of Sinabung. ...more [read all]

Pyroclastic flow on Sinabung this morning
Pyroclastic flow on Sinabung this morning
Lava extrusion continues. A series of small to moderately sized pyroclastic flows occurred this morning at the volcano. The flows were likely produced as parts of the upper, unstable and still growing viscous lava dome on the SE flank collapsed: ...more [read all]

Pyroclastic flow on Sinabung yesterday afternoon (photo: Ricky Febriansyah / ‏@RickyFebriand17 / twitter)
The volcano continues to slowly extrude viscous lava feeding the lava lobe on its southeastern flank. Occasional rockfalls, caused by instabilities on the steeper upper parts of the lava flows, continue to occur from time to time and represent a major hazard: Two larger ones occurred yesterday and produced pyroclastic flows that traveled 3.5 km distance to the southeast. ...more

Ash plume from a small pyroclastic flow at Sinabung yesterday
Ash plume from a small pyroclastic flow at Sinabung yesterday
No significant changes in activity have occurred, although some local media reported apparently stronger (rock-fall and pyroclastic flow) activity over the weekend: The extrusion of viscous lava from the volcano's summit vent continues to feed the second lava lobe on the steep, upper SE slope of the volcano. ...more

Small pyroclastic flow at Sinabung this morning
A small pyroclastic flow occurred on the slope of the volcano this morning. The flow was confined to the slope of the summit cone and did not reach the devastated areas at the SE base. ...more

Indandescents blocks from the second lava lobe that produced the collapse yesterday (image of unknown date: ANTARA FOTO/Irsan Mulyadi via Liputan6)
An unusually large collapse of parts of the still active lava flow occurred last night at around 19:30 local time and produced a large, dangerous pyroclastic flow that traveled approx. 4.5 km to the SE. There are no reports of injuries or fatalities, hopefully because no one was in the affected part of the exclusion zone. The flow had stopped in the immediate vicinity of the evacuated villages Berastapu and Sukanalu. ...more [read all]
