800 eruptions in 6 months

Indonesian volcano spews ash almost two miles (3.2 km) into the sky.

Mount Lokon, which has erupted 800 times since July, spewed hot lava and volcanic ash as high as 10,000 feet on Monday, according to an Indonesian government official.

  1. Hey Indonesia you have to pay now!!
    Your volcanoe gives a huge carbon footprint…….hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  2. with the amount of over 5 quakes round the area lately its not surprising it blew, oddness is in the fact many others havent also had a dummy spit too:-)
    suns quiet so we may get a few more vents similar.
    even more cooling particulate matter and some useful sulphur:-)

  3. Robert, a sidebar on the link to this one shows the sth american ones also begun some heft bursts too, 3 mile high smoke/ash.
