North Sulawesi’s Mount Lokon erupted at 10:20 a.m. on Tuesday, after several days of
increased activity, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) has announced.
The height at which lava shot out of the volcano was unknown because clouds were blocking the full view.
The agency declared areas within a 2.5 kilometers radius from the mountain’s peak dangerous and urged nearby residents to stay alert.
There are no residential areas within that zone.
