The alert level for the volcano was raised to "yellow"
, as an increase of volcano-tectonic earthquakes have been recorded since 16 July.
As we reported in the last update first eruption since August 2015
occurred on 16 July when minor plume of ash rose to an altitude of 10,982 ft (3,347 m).
Seismicity remained elevated with 311 volcano-tectonic earthquakes detected by the seismic network.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and gases could affect an area of about 2 km distance from the main crater.Source: Pusat Vulkanologi dan Mitigasi Bencana Geologi volcano activity update 21 July 2020

More on VolcanoDiscovery:
Walking & Study tours
: VolcanoDiscovery's signature tours for small groups: Discover volcanoes and volcanic areas from close with an expert in their field! These tours have a broad mix of activities and interests from photography, walking, study travel, nature & culture.
Fuego volcano photos
: One of Central America's most active volcanoes, Fuego in Guatemala is in near-permanent explosive eruption with intermittent phases of increasing activity that generate lava fountains, lava flows and pyroclastic flows.
Earthquakes near Volcanoes
: Our world-wide map continuously detects shallow earthquakes near volcanoes. These could be early signs of unrest and often precede eruptions.
Divergent plate boundaries in oceans
: Two ocean plates move apart from each other. Hot upwelling mantle material forms magmas that continuously produce new oceanic crust. An ocean widens.
