Due to visual and instrumental monitoring results as well as level of potential hazards the Alert Level for Kelut was lowered to 1 (on a scale of 1-4) on 12 August. Residents and visitors were advised to not approach the crater rim, crater floor, or the rivers that disgorge from Kelut.

The crater of Kelut volcano on 23 Feb 2014 (photo: https://twitter.com/RocknRoll_18270)
An areal photo from 23 Feb shows no signs of a new lava dome, at least not near the surface of the new crater.

The crater of Kelut on 18 Feb (Photo by Suwarno, a local photographer, via Oystein Lund Andersen)
Activity at the volcano has decreased, but it is still unknown what exactly the situation at the vent is, whether or not a new lava dome is forming there. The thermal hot spot visible on satellite data could also be caused by hot gasses. ...plus

MODIS hot spot at Kelut volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
A MODIS hot spot is visible at the crater, suggesting that a new lava dome could be forming there. This would be the effusive continuation of the recent explosion on 13 Feb, as magma with much less gas content continues to arrive at the vent.

Degassing plume of Kelut yesterday (photo: Aris Yanto)
The volcano itself remains relatively calm and produces only a degassing plume. So far, no clear picture has been available about what exactly is going on at the crater itself (e.g. whether a new lava dome is forming). ...plus

Steaming from Kelut this morning (new VSI webcam)
Activity has calmed down at the volcano. The new VSI webcam
shows the outer crater area covered with heavy ash deposits and only a small steam plume from the crater. ...plus

Steaming Kelut volcano this morning (photo: Aris Yanto)
The volcano continues to emit a dense steam plume and some ash, but has not produced new explosions. Apart from that the 2007 lava dome has been removed by the explosion, it is not very clear (nor easy to find out) what is currently happening in the crater. ...plus

Ash emissions from Kelut yesterday (photo taken from Blitar)
Additional details and new estimates about the recent explosion are emerging. Unfortunately, a 4th fatality caused by the eruption has now been confirmed by BNPB. All victims were within 7 km of the volcano. More than 100,000 people have been evacuated. ...plus

The ash plume of Kelut over the Indian Ocean (NASA earth observatory)
Ash from the eruption is still drifting over the eastern Indian Ocean. More than 100,000 people have reportedly evacuated areas close to the volcano. Heavy ash fall occurred in vast areas of Java. A preliminary judgement of the erupted ash suggests that the explosion was a magmatic event, i.e. triggered by a new bash of fresh magma that seems to have risen very quickly to the surface: ...plus
