Indonesia’s Ruang Vulkan Eruption, Alarmstatus

April 30, 2024 - Indonesiens Mount Ruang Vulka hat zum zweite Mal in zwei Wochen eine Eruption, sorgt für Evakuierungen und erhöht Alarmbereitschaft auf das höchste Niveau.

Indonesia’s disaster mitigation agency (BNPB) said that all 843 residents living in Ruang island, where the volcano is located, have been moved to Manado, the capital of North Sulawesi province. Residents of Tagulandang island are being relocated to Siau island to the north.

The eruption follows a series of eruptions earlier this month that forced hundreds to evacuate, and the airport in the provincial capital of Manado to close. That eruption also caused damage to some homes. At the time, the volcanology also issued a warning about the potential for a tsunami, Reuters said.
