Pyroclastic flow, 21 Feb at 00.38 AM (local time) (image: Sadrah Peranginangin / facebook)From Jeraya
The volcano continues to erupt with little changes overall: the activity consists of slow extrusion of viscous lava, interrupted by intermittent explosions (every few days on average) caused by sudden pressure release of trapped pressurized gasses. An explosion this morning was reported to have produced an ash plume that rose to 14,000 ft (4,2 km) altitude and drifted NW.
The rising magma inside the conduit continues to accumulate at the lava dome, feeding lava lobes on the steep upper flanks. From time to time, parts of these collapse, the avalanches generate small to moderate pyroclastic flows traveling down the southern and southeastern flanks.
