Merapi volcano news & eruption updates
Merapi volcano (Java, Indonesia), activity update: pyroclastoc flows
Monday Oct 25, 2010 15:45 PM | DOOR: TS
Like our team member Doni told us, Merapi is awaking and a mayor eruption is possible. People around the volcano are evacuated to prevent the danger of pyroclastic flows.

Merapi volcano near Central Java's capital Yogyakarta might be entering in a new phase of activity. The latest SI/USGS translates the following information from the Volcanological Survey of Indonesia: ...

Based on pilot reports, the Darwin VAAC reported an eruption plume from Merapi reaching an altitude of 6.1 km (20,000 ft) a.s.l.on 19 March.

Merapi volcano continues to be active, although the rate of the lava dome growth has been slowing down. During our ongoing tour, we visited the volcano on several occasions and observed a number of glowing rock avalanches to the SE side, travelling to a maximum of about 1 km from the summit. No pyroclastic flows were observed.
Saturday, Jul 29, 2006
During 19-25 July, lava flow / rock-fall activity at Merapi continued with incanescent rockfalls reaching maximum distances of 1.5 km SE toward the Gendol River. Pyroclastic flows were not observed during the reporting period. The Alert Level remained at 3 (on a scale of 1-4).
Wednesday, Jul 12, 2006
Merapi's activity has been gradually decreasing over the past two weeks. Pyroclastic flows into the Krasak and Gendol ravines have been becoming less frequent and rarely exceed 1 km in length. The lava dome is still glowing at night and produces incandescent rock-falls. Ash falls over the the past months have destroyed more than 3000 hectares of cultivated land (rice-fields, sweet-potato plantations and other crops), mostly in the Magelang, Boyolali and Klaten districts.
