Merapi volcano news & eruption updates

Merapi volcano (Central Java, Indonesia), eruption update: strong eruptions, uncertain reports about 12+ fatalities

Tuesday Oct 26, 2010 22:12 PM |

According to some news reports, the eruption of Merapi already took 12-15 fatalities. AFP reports "Twelve bodies were found by rescuers at a house near the volcano", the house of Merapi's gatekeeper Mbah Marijan who's believed to be in spiritual contact with Merapi and highly regarded by the local population. If this is true, a major pyroclastic flow has already been triggered by the new eruption.
Most other news sources, however, including Indonesian newspapers such as the Jakarta Post, do not mention these fatalities and only talk about injuries and a baby falling victim because of inhaling ash.
The VAAC Darwin reports ash reaching 60,000 ft (20 km) (!) in an advisory dated 19:45 GMT (26 Oct) and 30,000 ft (ca. 10 km) in a follow-up advisory at 19:50. Most likely, the altitude of the eruption plume is not easily detecteable and may be overestimated. Local sources speak of heights around 1.5 km above the crater, i.e. ca. 4000 m a.s.l. or ca. 12,000 ft.

Glowing rockfalls at Merapi volcano at night (Aug. 2006)
Friday, Aug 18, 2006

Merapi volcano continues to be active, although the rate of the lava dome growth has been slowing down. During our ongoing tour, we visited the volcano on several occasions and observed a number of glowing rock avalanches to the SE side, travelling to a maximum of about 1 km from the summit. No pyroclastic flows were observed.
