The Lewotobi Laki-Laki volcano on Indonesia’s Flores Island erupted on Monday, spewing ash up to 1,500 meters above its peak, according to the country’s Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG). The volcano had been at Level IV, the highest danger level, since the previous week, indicating a threat to surrounding settlements. The PVMBG urged the public to stay at least 4 kilometers away from the eruption center, expanding to 5 kilometers in the northwest and north. Cold lava surges into rivers were also warned in case of heavy rain. The twin volcano, standing at around 1,584 meters above sea level, has recorded 25 eruptions this year, prompting the evacuation of over 6,500 villagers for safety.
