Sirung volcano activity news & updates:

Sirung volcano (Pantar island, Indonesia): aviation alert level raised, possible new activity

Friday Jul 10, 2015 17:47 PM | BY: T

Darwin VAAC raised the aviation alert level to orange, after a plume of steam and possible light ash emissions were seen on satellite images drifting SW from the volcano last Tuesday.
Local observers reported a thick steam plume rising approx. 500 m from the volcano, but the volcano observatory had no particular indications (such as increased earthquakes, sulfur smell, rumblings) of a new eruptive phase.
The last confirmed activity at the volcano was likely a (single) phreatic explosion in May 2012.
