A new, intense (but probably again short-lived) eruptive phase started at the volcano early this morning, producing tall lava fountains and an ash column that rose at least 5-7 km height. ...

The level of activity is continuing to decline. Seismicity appears to have returned to pre-eruption pattern of low rates. A renewal of high activity remains possible at this highly active volcano, though may be a little less likely than last week.

Activity at Soputan has decreased since the strong eruptive episode on October 3. Seismicity has dropped to pre-eruption levels and only minor steaming from the summit crater has been observed. Activity could, however, increase again at any time, and the alert level remains at 3 (on a scale of 1-4).
The small Soputan stratovolcano on the southern rim of the Quaternary Tondano caldera on the northern arm of Sulawesi Island is one of Sulawesi's most active volcanoes. The youthful, largely unvegetated volcano rises to 1784 m and is located SW of Sempu volcano. It was constructed at the southern end of a SSW-NNE trending line of vents. During historical time the locus of eruptions has included both the summit crater and Aeseput, a prominent NE-flank vent that formed in 1906 and was the source of intermittent major lava flows until 1924.
