Gamalana volcano (Indonesia): eruption news & activity updates

Gamalama volcano (Halmahera, Indonesia) activity update

Monday Dec 22, 2014 18:44 PM | DOOR: T

Intermittent ash emissions continue from the volcano. As it is unknown whether the eruption will dwindle down or increase, an exclusion zone of 2.5 km radius around the summit is in place.
All persons that had been missing immediately after the eruption have been found, fortunately there were no victims, only 4 injured (by falling during escape).
Ash fall has been causing small problems in Ternate where over 45,000 dust masks were distributed. The airport is still closed.
