Slamet volcano (West Java): new eruptions, alert level raised
Tuesday Mar 11, 2014 08:57 AM | AUTEUR : TNew eruptions were observed at Java's second highest volcano since yesterday evening. A series of explosions produced ash plumes rising 800-1000 m above the summit, the local observatory reported.
This activity came after a steep increase in volcanic earthquakes from averages of approx 50 to more than 200 per day, volcanologist Mr Sudrajat from the local observatory told the press.
The first explosion occurred Monday evening at 20:06, causing the glass windows of the observatory building to vibrate. Shortly after, the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) raised the status of Mount Slamet from normal to alert (2 on a scale of 1-4).
According to local press, the vibration from the eruption could be felt in up to 10 km distance and described the plume as "thick smoke".
Slamet is one of Java's most active volcanoes and often has strombolian to vulcanian-type activity in its summit crater.
