Six volcanoes in Indonesia on high alert

All six “could develop into an eruption or disaster”

Six active volcanoes in Indonesia have been placed on high alert by the country’s National Disaster Management Agency. Greater activity has been found at Mount Tambora in West Nusa Tenggara, Anak Ranakan in East Nusa Tenggara, Papandayan in West Java, Karangetang and Lokon in North Sulawesi, and at Anak Krakatau in the Sunda Strait, between Java and Sumatra.
The six volcanoes are now at alert level three, an agency spokesperson has told the Jakarta Post, which means that they “could develop into an eruption or disaster”. Anak Krakatau, created from the Krakatoa disaster of 1883 that killed around 40,000 people, is now emitting in excess of 5,000 tremors per day. A two-kilometre exclusion zone has been established around it.
