Eruption of Paluweh Volcano, Indonesia

8.3S 121.7E

April 1st, 2013 Category: Volcanoes

Indonesia – March 24th, 2013

Ash is projected forth from the summit of the Paluweh (also known as Rokatenda) Volcano in Indonesia. It is carried southwest by winds, over the island of Flores, the Savu Sea and the island of Sumba. The eruption at Paluweh may have been caused by the collapse of an unstable lava dome. The number of small tremors and emissions of ash increased in October 2012 and continued into February 2013, perhaps indicating growth of the lava dome.
