Mount Soputan once again started spewing ash clouds in the air as it did on July 3. Volcanic ash reached 12 000 feet (3 700 meters). The density stays moderately dangerous for air traffic for approximately 100 km in a westerly direction, according to Darwin VAAC.
The Indonesian NDMA reports that the first of 2 powerful eruptions started at 09:27 local time. 7 hours later a second burst of ash followed.
Authorities have ordered a 6 km No-Go radius. So far there are no reports of injuries or serious damage.
