Indonesia : Merapi eruption – picture before and after the hot ash cloud

The picture below gives an idea how terribly hot a pyroclastic flow can be.
Th hot ash clouds are burning everything on their way. Nature but also people and infrastructure are charred.
Similar pictures exist from the eruption / explosion of Mount St Helens in Whasington, United States.

Left and right pictures are the same hill.
Left picture was shot on October 25 before the eruption
Right picture was shot on October 28 after some hot ash clouds.

Last week earthquake-report.com reported about just happened eruptions of Galeras Volcano in Colombia and Sinabung in Sumatra, Indonesia.
After positive feedback of our users, we have decided to follow also volcanoes from now on as a standard subject.

A second reason for covering and scanning volcano activity is the fact that volcanoes are the result of the motion of tectonic plates.

Our reporting will not only cover spectacular news,  but also in-depth files on volcano linked subjects.

On a regular basis we will publish lists of all active or near-active volcanoes in the world.

The main contributor of this website has a past of multiple visits and climbs of volcanoes worldwide.  He walked, climbed and visited the following active volcanoes : Sangay (Ecuador), Merapi (Indonesia), Etna (Sicily), Stromboli (Eolian islands-Sicily), Kilauea (Hawaii), Mount St Helens (Washington), Mt Hood (Oregon), Tungurahua (Ecuador),  Osorno (Chile) and Puyehue (Chile).t St Helens (Washington), Mt Hood (Oregon), Tungurahua (Ecuador),  Osorno (Chile
