3 Sep 11 – The Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Center (PVMBG) has elevated the status of three volcanoes in Nusa Tenggara from normal to alert, according to an official. “The volcanoes are Anak Ranakah, Tambora and Lewotobi Perempuan,” National Disaster Management Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said on Thursday.
This brings the number of Indonesian volcanoes “alert” status to eighteen, two of which are at Alert Level 3, or “Siaga”.
Sutopo said that a higher intensity of deep and shallow eruptions of Anak Ranakah in East Nusa Tenggara led officials to increase their warning status to alert, the third-highest level, on Aug 26. Twenty-four deep eruptions and 10 shallow eruptions were recorded near the volcano on Aug. 24.
