Dissipating aerosol plume from Saturday's eruption at Sangeang Api
Dissipating aerosol plume from Saturday's eruption at Sangeang Api
After the violent eruption on Saturday, a strong initial explosion followed by at least 3 other, but smaller explosions and ash emissions until yesterday, activity at the volcano has calmed down significantly. Weaker ash and steam emissions still continue but at significantly reduced intensity.
The Indonesian Volcanological Survey (VSI) lowered the alert status back to 2 ("waspada") on a scale of 1-4.
BNPB, Indonesian Civil Defense, has distributed more than 15,000 dust masks to people in the town of Bima at about 40 km distance to the SW.
The plume from the original explosion continues to spread and dissipate over a vast area between Indonesia and northern Australia. Flights to and from Darwin airport are reported to resume today.
