Soputan volcano (North Sulawesi): seismic crisis triggers eruption warning

As the 5th volcano in Indonesia currently on orange alert, the alert level of Soputan was raised to "siaga" (or 3 on a scale of 1-4) by VSI this morning. The decision came as a result of a marked increase in seismic activity over the past day.
Seismic activity started to be elevated early this year. The volcano is one of Indonesia's most frequently active and typically erupts every few years, often with only short periods of precursory seismic activity. The last eruption occurred in 2012, and the current crisis could very well lead to a new eruption in the near future.
At the moment, an exclusion zone of 6.5 km radius is in place around the volcano.

Indonesian volcanologists raised the alert level to 3 out of 4 ("Siaga", alert) on 19 April. The decision was based on an increase in block avalanches and seismicity including numerous volcanic-tectonic VA earthquakes (rock fracturing) and long-period VB events corresponding to internal fluid movements. ...

The small Soputan stratovolcano on the southern rim of the Quaternary Tondano caldera on the northern arm of Sulawesi Island is one of Sulawesi's most active volcanoes.  The youthful, largely unvegetated volcano rises to 1784 m and is located SW of Sempu volcano.  It was constructed at the southern end of a SSW-NNE trending line of vents.  During historical time the locus of eruptions has included both the summit crater and Aeseput, a prominent NE-flank vent that formed in 1906 and was the source of intermittent major lava flows until 1924.
