Dieng volcano (Central Java): alert level rises to 3 (out of 4)
Wednesday Jun 01, 2011 14:35 PM |
Timbang crater at Simbar village, Dieng volcano complex, is now on high alert status level 3. Inhabitants are being evacuated from a zone 1 km around the crater.
The most feared scenario is a sudden eruption of large amounts of CO2 and H2S, such as has happened in 1979 from the nearby crater Sinila which killed around 160 people in that event.
Thursday, May 26, 2011
The seismicity at Dieng Volcanic Complex has increased. On 22 May new white steam plumes were observed at the Timbang cone and CO2 levels increased as well. CVGHM raised the Alert Level to 2 (on a scale of 1-4).
