The volcano observatory raised the alert status of the volcano to 2 ("Waspada" on the Indonesian 1-4 scale), as an increase of volcanic earthquakes and fumarolic activity had been observed during the past week.
The observatory reported a light steam / gas plume rising approx. 500 m above the summit crater of Lowotolok. Since 29 December, the seismic network detected 4 earthquake swarms, one shallow and 3 deeper volcanic earthquakes. This could indicate magma intrusions under the volcano, which could (but not must) lead to a new eruption of the volcano in a near to medium-term future (weeks to months).
Residents as well as visitors and climbers are advised to keep a safety distance of 2 km from the crater. At present, climbing activities have been banned, and residents should remain on alert.

Lewotolok (or Lewotolo) on Lembata Island is one of the region's most active volcanoes. It has erupted on average every few decades, the last time in 1951 and 2012.
