JAKARTA, 4th December, 2022 (WAM) — Indonesia’s Semeru volcano on Java island erupted early on Sunday, spewing a column of ash 1.5 kilometres into the air, prompting authorities to warn residents to stay away from the eruption area, Reuters reported.
Indonesia’s disaster mitigation agency, BNPB, warned residents not to conduct any activities within 5 kilometres of the eruption centre and to stay 500 metres from riversides due to risks of lava flow.
Japan’s Meteorology Agency said was monitoring for the possibility of a tsunami there after the eruption, public broadcaster NHK reported.
