Small amount of ash generated by Raung volcano yesterday (image: PVMBG)
PVMBG reported that small amounts of ash, generated by the minor explosion, occurred yesterday.
An explosion at the volcano generated a white and grey ash plume, which rose approx. 686 ft (200 m)
above the crater and drifted N and S.
The seismic instruments record 21 volcano-tectonic earthquakes and 1 tremor.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs could affect an area of about 2 km distance from the main crater.
