New activity at Egon volcano
The following is an abbreviated report following a message posted on the Volcano Listserv (9 Feb. 2005) and a message from the Volcanological Survey of Indonesia who monitor the Indonesian volcanoes:
Renewed activity occured at Egon volcano (Lesser Sunda islands, Indonesia) on 6 and 7 February 2005. The eruptions were preceded by an increase in tremor, and consisted of the ejection of "glowing lava" and lapilli-sized material deposited on the volcano's S flank. A new fissure on the volcano's souther slope was detected streching down as far as 1000m from the crater.
Before and after the 7 February eruption there was a strong scent of sulfur in the villages of Hebing and Hale. One villager was knocked unconscious due to the gas. All of the vegetation along a fissure on the volcano's S flank had died, also indicating that there was a strong gas emission.
