A swarm of volcanic earthquakes that started yesterday under the volcano prompted VSI to raise the alert status from normal to waspada (2 on a scale of 1-4).
During 3 July, 62 volcanic quakes were detected, compared to averaged of 1-2 per day during the previous weeks. A light steam plume could be observed from the volcano's summit.
The remote volcano had its last eruption in 2005, when phreatic explosions occurred.
