Paluweh volcano (Flores Sea, Indonesia): eruption kills 6 people during pyroclastic flow

A larger eruption Saturday morning killed at least 6 people on the island in a pyroclastic flow.
It seems that the flow was triggered by a partial collapse if the still active lava dome. Other than most previous pyroclastic flows, this one traveled to the northern side and reached the coast where the victims were located.
About 3000 people were still staying on the already partially evacuated island. Now, authorities have begun to fully evacuate the island.
