Indonesia. Eruption of the Semeru volcano: striking images

Thousands of people on the run. The Semeru volcano in Indonesia erupted on December 4 at 2:30 p.m. local time. All the surroundings were covered with a thick layer of ash. If for the time being the authorities count one death and dozens of people hospitalized, the emergency services have evacuated the inhabitants on a perimeter of 5 km around the volcano. Many villagers and miners are missing.

Planes hijacked from the area

The ash cloud rose to 15,000 meters, according to the air authorities. The planes are also diverted from the area. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has issued an alert, signaling movement of this gigantic cloud.

In this region of Lumajang, the helpers intervened in particular near a village, threatened by lava flows and a cloud of ash. “Several regions have been plunged into darkness after being covered by volcanic ash,” said Abdul Muhari, spokesperson for the national disaster agency. Several Indonesians filmed this dark night in broad daylight.

Torrential rains at the origin of the disaster

Shelters and care centers were set up urgently to accommodate the evacuees. Especially since the disaster occurs when the region is suffering from torrential rains, which could have caused the eruption. The rains and thunderstorms would indeed have accelerated the erosion of the lava dome on the surface of the volcano. The fall of this dome would then have generated a chain reaction.

The last major eruption of Semeru dates from December 2020. Here too, thousands of inhabitants had to flee their homes, covered with ash. Indonesia sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where the meeting of the continental plates causes high seismic activity. This Southeast Asian archipelago has nearly 130 active volcanoes on its territory.
