Kupang - The Ile Lewotolok Volcano Observation Post in Ile Ape District, Lembata Regency, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) reported that from Wednesday (1/5) at 00.00 WITA until 24.00 WITA there were 348 gusts of earthquakes. 

"There were 348 gusts of seismic activity that occurred at the top of Mount Lewotolok," said the official who prepared the report on observations of Mount Ile Lewotolok, Fajaruddin M. Balido from Lembata, Thursday morning.

He explained that of the 348 earthquakes, the gusts produced amplitudes ranging from 1.4 to 22.4 millimeters, with durations ranging from 19 to 152 seconds.

Meanwhile, other seismic activity also occurred, such as 12 shallow volcanic activities with an amplitude of 1.1 to 6.5 millimeters with a duration of around 4 to 10 seconds.

Then there were 10 deep volcanic eruptions with amplitudes ranging from 1.4 to 10 millimeters with a duration of 5 to 17 seconds. Meanwhile, distant tectonics was recorded only once with an amplitude of 4.4 millimeters with a duration of 96 seconds.

He added that visually the mountain is clear with the district category in the 0-I range. Meanwhile, weak pressure crater smoke was observed to be white with light, medium, thick intensity and a height of 25-400 meters above the top of the crater.

"The mountain was also observed to have fire rays at the top and weak rumblings, nothing," he said.

He added that the mountain's status is still at level III or alert status. Then, based on the weekly report submitted by the Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation (PVMBG), it was stated that volcanic activity on the mountain was still quite high.

For this reason, the Geological Agency also recommends that the people of Lamatokan and Jontona villages be aware of the potential threat of lava avalanches or avalanches and hot clouds from the eastern part of the mountain peak or crater.

Meanwhile, the people of Jontona and Todanara Villages are recommended not to enter the southern and southeastern sector areas as far as three kilometers from the center of mountain activity.
