Indonesia raises Mount Ibu volcanic alert to the highest level

Indonesian officials made the warning for Mount Ibu higher because the volcano has been erupting a lot since last week.

The 1,325-meter volcano on Halmahera island is releasing a lot of ash and dark clouds into the air every day since last Friday.

Muhammad Wafid, the boss of Indonesia’€™s Geology Agency, said, “The alert level for Mount Ibu has been raised from 3 to 4 because the monitoring shows that there is more volcanic activity. ”

Authorities told people not to do anything near the crater within 7 kilometers and to be careful because there might be a lava eruption.

There are many people living in that area. The local government has set up tents for people to go if they need to leave, but they haven’t told anyone to leave yet.

There have been more earthquakes and volcanic activity from Mount Ibu.

Indonesia is made up of many islands and has 270 million people. There are also 120 volcanoes that are currently active. It might have a lot of volcanoes because it’s located on the “Ring of Fire,” a horseshoe-shaped line of earthquake faults around the Pacific Ocean.
