Pyroclastic flow on Sinabung yesterday (photo: Firdaus Surbakti - facebook.com/firdaus.surbakti)
A pyroclastic flow occurred yesterday afternoon (17:40 WIB) at the volcano. Most likely, it was triggered by a partial collapse of the steep lava tongue that had been emplaced on its southern flank during the past months.
Fortunately, the flow was rather small and only reached the now depopulated area at the feet of the mountain.
