There has been a change in the alert status for yet another Indonesian volcano in addition to Sinabung.
This time, Seulawah Agam on Aceh has been raised to the lowest Alert Status (from no alert) by the Center for
Volcanology and Disaster Mitigation due to increased seismicity underneath the volcano. Beyond the eruption in 1839,
little is known about Seulawah Agam - it appears that there have been no historic eruptions, but there may have been
some minor hydrothermal explosions. A 3-km exclusion zone has been declared around the volcano but no
evacuations have been called.
