Mount Gamalama volcano in Indonesia's remote North Maluku province erupted at 23:00 local time on Sunday (1400 GMT), according to local news. The eruption produced small amounts of ash, causing local electrical blackouts and ash fall in the provincial capital city of Ternate.
There are reports of damage or fatalities. According to the news, some people from nearby villages have evacuated to safer locations, while a number remained at their homes.
No ash seems to be visible on satellite imaginary: the VAAC Darwin has not issued any advisories, suggesting that the eruption is small. On the other hand, ash is difficult to detect in tropical areas with heavy cloud cover.
The National Agency of Disaster Management (BNPB) is in charge of monitoring the situation and prepare for possible evacuations.
