New lava dome seen in Indonesia’s Merapi volcano

April 12, 2011INDONESIA – Indonesia’s most active volcano Merapi has seen a new lava dome formation at a diameter of 400 meters recently. “The dome has resulted from the latest eruption which has expanded to 400 meters in diameter,” said Subandriyo, Chief of Volcanology Technology Research and Development Agency (BPPTK) of Yogyakarta, on Tuesday. According to Subandriyo, the new lava dome is not visible, “because it does not overflow.” However, the situation of the Merapi peak is now back to normal after sharp changes occurred on Friday, April 8. During that day, volcanic tremors were recorded at 50 times of occurrences, which later doubled on Saturday. “But it’s normal,” he said. –Viva News
