Strombolian explosions accompany a lava flow emitted from a vent inside the large summit crater. Some of the explosions were strong enough to produce significant but low-level ash plumes drifting east. Some airlines canceled flights to Surabaya and Bali that would pass near or in the paths of the plumes....
