Karangetang (Siau Island, Sangihe Islands, Indonesia): (17 Sep) An eruptive event yesterday produced an ash plume that rose from what could be a new lateral vent on the lower northern (?) flank of the volcano.
Although the photo sent to us looks rather like an ash plume that originated from the front of an avalanche that departed at low level, local sources insist on having observed a new vent.
