Volcanic activity worldwide 5 Jun 2015: Bagana volcano

Friday Jun 05, 2015 21:00 PM |

Bagana (Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea): (5 Jun) Based on satellite observations, the volcano has produced a number of ash plumes rising to approx. 8,000 ft (2.4 km) altitude, which drifted 40 km to the west. (VAAC Darwin)
A strong heat source has been visible at the crater since 21 May as well. This suggests a new eruptive phase is in course, likely in form of a lava dome extrusion and/or mild strombolian activity.

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): The alert level of the volcano was again raised from "siaga" to "awas", the highest on the Indonesian 1-4 scale. The reason is a currently elevated risk of possibly larger pyroclastic flows, that could be triggered by collapse of the increasing volume of the viscous lava lobe emplaced on the upper SE flank. ...
