Indonesia's Mount Lokon erupts
www.mysinchew.com...


JAKARTA, April 24 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia's Mount Lokon in North Sulawesi Province erupted at 10:20 Jakarta time (0320 GMT) on Tuesday, an official said here.

Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, head of Data Center, Information and Public Relation at the National Agency for Disaster Management ( BNPB), said that the eruption height is not known as it is covered by clouds.

"Tremor is felt 5 kilometers away from Tompuloan crater," said Nugroho.

However, he said, people are not urged to take refuge.

The government has urged people not to make any activity at the distance of 2.5 kilometers below the crater.

"Luckily, there is no residence across the distance," said Nugroho.

Nugroho added that there is potential of another eruption.

OK I'll bite


When is an eruption an eruption! It is still at level 3 warning.

Yes some stuff is coming out of it. Has been for a while. Safe at 2.5Km.

Not an eruption in my book. My book could be wrong!

So serious Q, how do we discriminate between say a scientist and Jakarta's answer to chicken little!

Local residents around Mount Lokon in Tomohon, North Sulawesi, have been asked to evacuate the area, following a steady increase of activity in the mountain since 4 p.m. local time. “We are on alert status [Level 3],” said National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho on Monday. “We ask that local disaster mitigation agencies follow the technical recommendations we have given them. There should be no community activity within a 2.5 kilometer radius of the volcano crater,” Sutopo added.

Yeah, RSOE is a neat site when something like this happens. It's usually near-real time for catching things. I imagine they have some high quality coding there for catching the feeds of all the Gov agencies that report...It's all that makes sense for how complete and fast they are.

Of course it's also rightly called Disaster Porn....so I always tell people new to that site to watch it for a few days or weeks to get a feel for what is normal and what is background stuff happening every day. 95% of everything RSOE has is that background activity. It's sure great to pass time with ..or when a big event happens.

Jakarta Post's article (Indonesian newspaper) that reports it but they say no evacuation plans as of yet.

The agency declared areas within a 2.5 kilometers radius from the mountain’s peak dangerous and urged nearby residents to stay alert. However, the agency said that the residents living outside the zone do not need to evacuate yet.
