During the past 2,3 days, the volcano has been relatively calm and not produced pyroclastic flows, only small rockfalls from two lava lobes, a smaller and a much larger one, overspilling to the SE and ENE, respectively
Both are weakly active; the one to the ENE seems prone to potentially larger collapses, which would generate pyroclastic flows that could threaten villages to the E and ENE, in particular Tiga Serangkai village.
