A new eruptive phase has started at the volcano: a new lava flow is being erupted from the northern crater.
It is currently traveling with 2 branches in the northern slopes. Our Indonesian correspondent and expedition leader Andi reported: "
This is again now activity from Karangetang volcano in N- Sulawesi ejecting lava flow from crater one.
There are two active craters which last time the lava flow also came out from crater two during March - April which devastated one bridge , roads and affected the village Batubulan had trapped in the west flank."
Increased thermal signals correspond to this new phase of activity as well.
