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

The volcano continues to slowly extrude lava feeding the large lava lobe on the southeastern flank. Occasional rockfalls and small pyroclastic flows have been observed in the past weeks. ...more [read all]

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
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

VSI published a new status report which indicates that effusive activity at the volcano still continues. The lava lobe still grows at very slow rate with an overall decreasing trend over the past months. ...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]

Weak lava extrusion continues to add material to the viscous lava lobe, which at the same time looses some of its mass in occasional small rockfalls from its front and the sides. These sometimes result in small pyroclastic flows.

The possible ash plume from Sinabung and predicted trajectory (VAAC Darwin; MTSAT; annotations by @CultureVolcan / Twitter)
VAAC Darwin raised the Aviation Color Code to "Red" after a possible major ash plume was spotted on satellite imagery. According to the original report, a possible ash plume rose to estimated 50,000 ft (15 km) altitude 12:32 UTC on 22 May and drifted SW. The height was later reduced to 35,000 ft (12 km). ...more

Small pyroclastic flow at Sinabung on the morning of 13 May
Small pyroclastic flow at Sinabung on the morning of 13 May
Activity at the volcano remains weak. Slow lava extrusion continues along with occasional ash venting and small pyroclastic flows triggered by collapse of parts of the viscous lava lobe on the southern flank.

MODIS hot spots at Sinabung (MODVOLC, Univ. Hawaii)
The volcano continues to slowly aliment the large viscous lava lobe on the SE flank. Its growth is mainly manifested by numerous small to medium-sized rockfalls from its flanks and front, but also occasional pyroclastic flows that have reappeared since mid April. ...more [read all]
