Raung volcano

Raung in Eastern Java in the Ijen Plateau is one of Java’s most active volcanoes, with frequent explosive eruptions every few years. Raung is a massive stratovolcano constructed SW of the rim of the Ijen caldera. Its 3332-m-high, unvegetated summit of Gunung Raung is truncated by a dramatic steep-walled, 2-km-wide caldera where all of the frequent historical eruptions took place.

Stratovolcano 3332 m (10,932 ft)
East Java, Indonesia, -8.13°S / 114.04°E
Current status: minor activity or eruption warning (3 out of 5)

The alert level for the volcano was raised to “orange”, as an increase of volcano-tectonic earthquakes have been recorded since 16 July.
As we reported in the last update first eruption since August 2015 occurred on 16 July when minor plume of ash rose to an altitude of 10,982 ft (3,347 m).
Seismicity remained elevated with 311 volcano-tectonic earthquakes detected by the seismic network.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and gases could affect an area of about 2 km distance from the main crater.
