Indonesia – March 24th, 2013

An eruption of the Paluweh Volcano caused a thick plume of ash to blow westward and then south, across Flores Island and over the Savu Sea.  High-altitude winds carried airborne ash more than 440 kilometers (270 miles) to the southwest. Paluweh, also known as Rokatenda, is a stratovolcano mountain located on the small Palu’e Island, north of Flores Island in Sikka Regency in the province of East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. It is the highest point on the island with a height of 875 metres (2,871 ft).
