Raung volcano (East Java, Indonesia): ash plume results in cancellations of flights to and from Bali

Raung's ash plume yesterday (NASA satellite image)
Intense ash emissions and northwesterly winds have repeatedly forced to close Bali's Denpasar International Airport (DPS) during the past days, resulting in many flight cancellations.
The ash plume, drifting at approx. 5 km altitude, extended over 500 km SE this morning.

The eruption at the volcano remains very intense and might have increased during the past days. ... [more]
Monday, Aug 03, 2015
The eruption continues. Ash emissions have decreased, while satellite-detected heat emission increased during the past days. This could suggest that activity is now more effusive (lava flows) than explosive (ash emissions) in style. ... [more]
Friday, Jul 31, 2015
The attached satellite image from 20 July shows that the whole crater floor has been covered by fresh lava flows. ... [more]
Tuesday, Jul 28, 2015
Strombolian activity occurs from two main vents as the submitted photo shows. [more]
Tuesday, Jul 28, 2015
The eruption, now over 4 weeks old, continues with no significant changes. Strong lava effusion inside the summit caldera is accompanied by near-constant ash emissions rising 1-2 km and drifting up to 100-200 km in mostly westerly directions. ... [more]
