The lava flow continues to be active on the northern slopes.
Strombolian-type eruption occurred from its crater at 22:35 local time today accompanied by ejected scoria to several hundred meters distance from the summit. The height of an ash plume was reported neither the local observatory nor the VAAC Darwin yet.
The local volcano observatory reported a seismic signal with a maximum amplitude of 34 mm and a duration of 61 seconds.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows and lahars could affect an area of about 3 km distance from the main crater.

Lewotolok volcano (Lembata Island) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 15 June-21 June 2022 (Continuing Activity)
PVMBG reported that the eruption at Lewotolok continued during 14-22 June. An eruptive event at 1501 on 16 June produced a white-to-gray ash plume that rose about 700 m above the summit and drifted W and NW. Another event at 1127 on 17 June generated a dense gray ash plume that rose about 1 km and drifted W. ... Read all
