More Indonesian volcanoes active and one in the Phillippines

24.11.2010, Age: 3956 days

With casualty numbers after the eruption of Merapi steadily rising to more than 320, yet another volcano, Bromo in East Java has started to spew ash. The Ministry of Mines and Energy has given out a high alert for Bromo. The exclusion zone has been extended to 3 km, last Wednesday.

In the meantime, Merapi continues to produce ash explosions and pyroclastic flows. Over the last few weeks, more than 200,000 people have fled their homes. The government is doing everything to keep people away from the the volcano, as the situation is still far from safe.

At yet another volcano, the notorious Anak Krakatau, it looks as if the activity is decreasing. The government maintains a danger zone of 2 km around the volcano.

In the Phillippines, Bulusan has been erupting since last Sunday. 3,500 people had to leave their homes.
