11 Sep 11 – In North Sulawesi, Mount Lokon continued to be a concern two months after it first erupted. On Sunday, Lokon erupted seven times, sending debris up to 350 meters from the edge of the crater.
Observers recorded more than 20 volcanic quakes on Saturday, and one tectonic quake and two volcanic quakes on Sunday morning.
Meanwhile, provincial authorities raised the alert level of Mount Tambora to the second-highest possible as volcanic activity increased in the volatile mountain.
The volcano, site of the world’s deadliest eruption on record, showed no visual signs of an upcoming eruption, but data collected on mechanical instruments gave cause for concern.
“Classified as a “supercolossal event,” Tambora’s 1815 eruption ejected immense amounts of volcanic dust into the upper atmosphere, significantly impacting the global climate for many years afterward. In Indonesia, the volcano’s roar could be heard more than 800 miles away. ”
That eruption killed more than 90,000 people, including many who died from famine and disease as a result of the event.
