Explosion at Sinabung on 21 June 2017 (image: Endro Lewa - facebook.com/endrolewa)
Activity at the volcano remains elevated. A series of explosions and partial collapses of the overspilling lava tongues with pyroclastic flows occurred during the past week generating ash plumes that rose 3-6.4 km (10,000-21,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted in multiple directions.
