KEDIRI - The Mount Kelud volcano in eastern Java is still active. As is reported by reporters at the scene, the lava island inside the crater lake of the volcano is still growing. This is measured by the number of tremors originating from the crater. Clouds of white steam and smoke are still exhausted by the central part of the crater and reach altitudes of around 1,000 meters. The observation post for the Kelud volcano reported that there were 25 tremors inside the crater which caused the exhaust of white clouds of steam.
There is still an increase in the volume of lava. This is indicated by volcanic tremors with a maximum amplitude of six millimeters. Deformation of the crater lake has at least slowed down or may have completely come to a halt by now. At this moment the volcano is still under close watch by observers. The current growth of the bulge of lava can result in two things; an explosive eruption or a rupture of the new island and no explosive eruption.
