Paluweh volcano (Flores, Indonesia): situation on the island remains critical
Thursday Feb 14, 2013 11:34 AM | BY: T
VSI points out that the main hazard zones for pyroclastic flows, if the dome continues to grow, include now also the valleys to the west and south-east, in addition to the open valley to the south (that already was invaded by pyroclastic flows, visible on the recent NASA space image).
The situation on the island remains critical. Many villages are now directly in this danger area (Nitunglea, Rokirole, Tuanggeo, Ona, Wolondopo).
Significant ash fall may also occur, with the usual consequences (pollution of drinking water supplies, eye, epidermal, respiratory problems etc.)
