Karangetang volcano news & updates:

Karangetang volcano (Siau Island, Sangihe Islands, Indonesia) activity update: rockfalls, glowing lava dome

Wednesday Jan 13, 2016 16:48 PM | DOOR: T

Seismic activity at Karangetang since Jan 2015 (VSI)
Seismic activity at Karangetang since Jan 2015 (VSI)
Ash from the volcano has been observed on satellite imagery during 11-12 Jan, Darwin VAAC reported. Likely, this came from a larger rockfall triggering a small pyroclastic flow, but this needs to be confirmed. The latest VSI report from this morning only mentions continuing glow from the active summit lava dome and small to moderate rockfalls.
In case of heavy rains, larger rockfalls and lahars could occur, in particular towards the valleys radiating to the SE from the volcano. Seismic activity remains elevated with an increase in shallow volcanic quakes.
