Gamalana volcano (Indonesia): eruption news & activity updates

Gamalana volcano (Ternate Island, Indonesia): phreatic eruption on Thursday

Thursday Jul 16, 2015 23:16 PM | DOOR: T

A phreatic explosion occurred yesterday (16 July) at 10 am local time, producing an ash plume that rose 1500 m. Ternate's airport was temporarily closed following the eruption.
The eruption had been preceded by increasing seismic activity since late June. The alert level of the volcano remains at 2 (waspada) on a scale of 1-4, but VAAC Darwin raised the aviation color code to "orange". An exclusion zone of 1.5 km around the summit is in place.
