Karangetang volcano (Siau Island, Sangihe Islands, Indonesia) activity update

Activity at the volcano has decreased a bit, but the volcano continues to effuse viscous lava at its summit, feeding a lava flow and generating incandescent avalanches.
MODIS thermal signal from Karangetang (MIROVA)
from the Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report 4-10 November 2015:
During 28 October-4 November that activity remained stable. The lava dome was incandescent at night and produced a lava flow that traveled 200 m S. Incandescent avalanches from the lava-flow front traveled as far as 2 km E down the Batuawang and Kahetang drainages.
Seismicity decreased, but continued to be dominated by avalanche signals. The Alert Level remained at 3 (on a scale of 1-4); visitors and residents were warned not to approach Karangetang within a 4-km radius.

The eruption continues at the volcano: it is characterized by Strombolian activity at the summit crater and lava extrusion that forms frequent incandescent avalanches. Lees alle

Thermal signals from the volcano have been increasing over the past days, suggesting that the lava output at the summit crater has increased. This could again again to dangerous pyroclastic flows if the lava dome or lava flows become unstable on the steep upper flanks of the volcano. Such flows can easily reach inhabited areas. Lees alle
