Merapi volcano (Central Java, Indonesia): lava dome grows in summit crater, potentially becoming dangerous

The volcano continues to erupt slowly, gradually filling the summit crater with a growing lava dome. Incandescent rockfalls occur from the sides of the dome, but so far these have been confined to the crater.
However, the situation is slowly (but almost surely) becoming more dangerous: As the dome grows, the risk of larger, sudden explosions increases, as well as the risk that the dome over-spills or breaches the crater rim. In that case, its activity will directly threaten the densely inhabited areas downslope, as pieces breaking off the lava dome can easily turn into glowing avalanches (pyroclastic flows) that can travel many kilometers and devastate everything in their path.
As for now, authorities have raised the alert level to 2 (on a scale of 1-4) and closed the summit area for climbing.

This morning's explosion at Merapi
vendredi, juin 01, 2018
Another strong, but short-lived explosive eruption occurred at the volcano this morning at 08:20 local time. The eruption lasted only about 2 minutes, but was powerful enough to send an ash column approx. 6 km above the summit crater to an altitude around 9 km. It rose near vertically then drifted to the NW and SW. ... [details]
