Indonesian authorities raised the alert level to the highest after the Semeru volcano on the island of Java erupted on Sunday.

The Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) raised its alert level for the volcano to the highest, and residents of the two nearest villages have been evacuated from the region.

“We have also told all people living around the volcano not to do any activities around the Besuk Kobokan riverbank, as the river has the potential to flow hot clouds and lava,” the country’s national disaster management agency spokesman Abdul Muhari said in a written statement.

A total of 51 people were killed after the Semeru volcano erupted in December. 4, 2021.

Mt. Semeru, which is 3,676 meters above sea level, previously erupted in December 2020 and January this year.

Indonesia, an archipelago home to nearly 275 million people, lies along the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring of Fire,” an area with multiple fault lines that make it prone to frequent volcanic activity and earthquakes.

A powerful earthquake shook Indonesia’s Java island on Saturday, sparking panic in a region where more than 320 people were killed in an earthquake last month.
