Volcano Merapi in Indonesia throws hot clouds at a distance of 1.5 km

Volcano Merapi, located on the Indonesian island of Java, has thrown hot clouds 1.5 km southwestward. This was announced on Tuesday, March 30, by the Antara news agency, citing the national Geological Disaster Research Center. According to the center, on the eve of Monday, seismologists recorded about six lava outbursts. At the same time, a few hours before the ejection of the volcanic cloud, experts recorded at least 19 lava outbursts. The incandescent magma spread over a distance of 1,000 km. In addition, during this period of time, about 50 small earthquakes occurred in the area.

Experts predict that lava and hot clouds will affect several areas in the south and southwest of the island.

On the night of March 24, the eruption of Mount Etna began on the Italian island of Sicily. In this regard, the work of the local airport of Catania was temporarily suspended. On March 20, on the Icelandic Peninsula Reykjanes, the eruption of the Fagradalsfjadl volcano began, which has not been active for 6 thousand years.
