Merapi volcano news & eruption updates
Merapi volcano (Central Java, Indonesia), update: ash over Yogyakarta, pyroclastic flows and lava dome growth
Saturday Oct 30, 2010 10:22 AM |
The strong eruptions last night showered Ygoya and Sleman cities with ash. Andy reports directly from the observatory Babadan, + 1279 m on the western slope, still mostly free of ash: "I witnessed 2 times pyroclastic flows since at 05.00 through Senowo river. Again last night 29 oct, around at 24.00 there was a massive glowing ash column rising up until 1,5 km, and all people at 5 at the distance 10 km from the summit must evacuated.
Merapi seems back to its typical style of building a lava dome, which is now growing from the old 2006 dome, and tends to grow to the south east and to the south west."
