The new eruption of Batu Tara on the tiny island with the same name is getting more intense. As explosive activity has set on, ash clouds are ejected to up to 2-3 km above the small volcanic cone. As a safety measurement, mainly to protect them from tsunami (that might be triggered by earthquakes, landslides or pyroclastic flows) around 7,000 inhabitants of the closest neighboring island, Lembata 50 km to the south, were evacuated. Fishermen, also, have been warned to stay at least 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) from the volcanic island.
