Rinjani, Indonésia : The lava flow which flows to the north-east came into the lake.

 

The latest report (partial, VSI):

Visual observation showed that the eruption of Barujari mainly produces ash, pyroclastic drops that fall on the cone and streams of lava that flow to the northwest and northeast of the crater Barujari in the lake of the caldera of Rinjani. The lava flow which flows to the north-east came into the lake and reached the inner wall of the caldera covering the area Pagar Batu. The contact between the lava and the water produced clouds of thick white smoke that are primarily water vapor.

The threat of an eruption that could endanger human life directly, in the form of impacts of pyroclastic lapilli (2-64 mm) and / or bombs (> 64mm) and lava flows, is always present in the Rinjani caldera, and within 3 km from the eruption center. Clouds of ash eruptions (size 2 times higher than under normal conditions, is of the order of 0.4 m3 / s to about 0.9 m3 / sec. Although Segara Anak Lake overflows, so far there has been no reported flooding.
