Sangeang Api volcano (Indonesia) activity update

Friday Jul 10, 2015 17:57 PM | BY: T

The volcano continues to erupt. On Wednesday (8 July), an explosion generated an ash plume that rose to 9,000 ft (2.7 km) altitude and drifted 35 km to the south.
When flying past the volcano during our recent Batu Tara expedition, we could see a dense gas plume drifting from its summit crater.
