Inielika volcano eruptions

complex volcano 1559 m / 5,115 ft
Flores, Indonesia, -8.73°S / 120.98°E
Eruption list: 2001, 1908, 1905


1991 eruption
Inielika volcano erupted between 11-16 January 2001. Numerous explosions, some with thundering sounds audible up to 8 km away produced ash plumes that reached heights of 1 km above the volcano, causing light ash fall in the immediate surroundings up to ca. 10 km distance.
2 new craters were formed by the (phreatic?) explosions, the larger one to the SE 50 m wide and 10 m deep, and a smaller crater to the NW 20 m wide and 1 m deep.
