The Soputan volcano has started erupting in Sulawesi, Indonesia, just after the island was struck by a deadly and catastrophic M7.5 earthquake on September 28, 2018. It is unknown if the earthquake has triggered the eruption. But these are two major geological phenomena to hit Sulawesi within 5 days. A lot of activity over there right now. People keep safe!

The PVMBG has increased the alert level of the volcano from 2 to 3 / Siaga, with a restriction zone of 4-6.5 km radius around the summit.

OMG that first video is crazy!

According to seismometers data, the seismicity under the volcano has suddenly increased from 2-6 events to 851 events on October 2, 2018.

The eruption took place on October 3, 2018 1:00am local time and ejected an ash plume more than 4,000 meters in the air (5,800 meters asl). The maximum seismic amplitude was 39 mm and lasted about 6 minutes.

Three further eruptions occurred at 10:44, 11:12 and 11:52 respectively, accompanied by ashplumes of 2,000 m, 2,500 m, and finally 5,000 m. above the summit, respectively.

Just a few hours before Soputan, on October 2, 2018 Anak Krakatau also erupted strongly. The below video by CNN shows this nightly eruption as well as other pictures of the Soputan eruption.

Take care and be prepared for any volcanic eruptions around you…

  1. This is amazing! Just now, I have received “Presidential Alart” testing to my cell phone. US Government is preparing for the emergency and disasters just happened to Indonesia. US has not been very much affected by volcano eruption nor earthquake yet. But I am sure that it will happen soon or later. Now is the Earth change time, the end of the time on 3D Earth.

    • On the video above, the dead bodies people were picking up looked like a rock just like the stoned bodies in Pompeii. Just only one day is the enough time that dead bodies become stoned with Pyroclastic Surge Death? It is amazing. We might be able to see more volcanic activities near cities in the future, and all the human bodies will be stoned within one day.
