Mt. Merapi in Indonesia erupts 16 times in the last 24 hours says PVMBG

In the span of 24 hours, Mount Merapi, a highly active volcano in Indonesia, erupted a total of 16 times, as reported by the Centre for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG). The eruptions reached heights of up to 1,800 meters. Mount Merapi’s frequent volcanic activity poses significant challenges to nearby communities and requires constant monitoring and assessment by volcanic authorities.

The PVMBG plays a crucial role in monitoring the volcano’s behavior and providing timely updates and warnings to ensure the safety of the surrounding areas. The continuous eruptions highlight the ongoing volcanic hazard in the region and emphasize the need for preparedness and response measures to protect local residents and mitigate potential risks.
