Sinabung volcano (Sumatra): eruption news and activity updates

Sinabung volcano (Sumatra, Indonesia): eruption continues with little changes into its 4th year

Monday Jan 09, 2017 16:18 PM | BY: T

The volcano remains active and Indonesian scientists predict it might well continue to erupt during the new year (as it has for more than 3 years already).
Slow arrival of viscous magma accumulates at the lava dome in the summit, feeding lobes that descend on the southern and southeastern flank, crumble away, generating rockfalls and occasional small to moderate pyroclastic flows. At the same time, gas is released by vertical explosions such as one this morning that produced a plume that rose approx. 2000 m from the volcano.
