New Indonesian eruption: Mt. Soputan

Soputan 2007
A few reports this morning that Mt. Soputan, on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, is currently erupting. The reports indicate that there has been a lot of seismic activity and some ash emitted from the volcano. As with many volcanoes in the densely populated nation of Indonesia, there are people living on the slopes of Mt. Soputan and the authorities are preparing to evacuate them, if necessary. The last eruption at Soputan was way back in … 2007 (see photo above), so it seems like the volcano is another one of many active Indonesian volcanoes.
