Karangetang volcano news & updates:

Karangetang volcano (Siau Island, Indonesia): ongoing strombolian activity and small pyroclastic flows

jueves sep 30, 2010 06:39 |

Karangetang continues to be active, as a recent report from the Indonesian Volcanological Survey shows, kindly translated in the latest SI/USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report:
CVGHM reported that during 1-7 September lava seen from the observation post
(5 km SSW) traveled 75 m down Karangetang's flanks. Avalanches traveled as
far as 1.5 km down the Batang (S), Batu Awang (E), and Nanitu drainages.
Incandescent material was ejected 350 m above the crater. During 8-21
September lava traveled 500 m down the flanks. Avalanches originating from
the end of the lava flow traveled as far as 2 km down the Batang, Kahetang
(E), and Nanitu drainages. During 18-20 September material was ejected
300-500 m above the crater. Ashfall was reported in areas to the NW. On 21
and 22 September incandescent material traveled down multiple drainages.
Strombolian activity was observed on 22 September; material ejected 50 m
high fell back down around the crater. That same day the Alert level was
raised to 3 (on a scale of 1-4).
