Raung volcano (East Java, Indonesia): alert level raised
Wednesday Mar 18, 2015 07:32 AM | BY: T
Strombolian activity in Raung's crater in late Feb 2015 (photo: Andi / VolcanoDiscovery Indonesia)
Number of recorded volcanic-tectonic earthquakes at Raung (VSI)
Strombolian activity continues from the vents inside the summit caldera of the volcano. Raung's alert level of the volcano was raised to 2 (on a scale of 1-4) a week ago.
An increasing number of volcanic-tectonic earthquakes had been detected. These quakes are indicators of rock breaking at depth, which can be caused by pressurized fluids, such as magma, intruding into the system.

A weak SO2 plume (which could be from Ijen and/or Raung volcanoes) is visible on today's satellite data. Recently, mild strombolian activity was observed in the summit crater, which might still be continuing.
