Sinabung erupted on 20.08.20

The Indonesian volcano Sinabung continues to dominate the worldwide eruption events and thus secures the first place in the news. The VAAC registers volcanic ash. It reaches a height of 3300 m above sea level. The volcanologists of the VSI reported 3 ash exhalations in the first half of the day. According to their observations the ash clouds rise up to 500 m above crater height. 36 low frequency earthquakes indicate magma rise. The number of these quakes is still increasing and it would not surprise me if dome growth would start in the medium term. In our FB group “volcanoes and volcanism” numerous media have been shared about Sinabung.
