Mount Lokon, an active volcano located on the northern tip of the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, is currently erupting. Sulawesi is home to many Wetpixel members, and visited by many more. We have been in touch with some of the dive centers in Lembeh, and the news is reassuring: The airport at Manado is still open, and none of the dive centers are experiencing any problems. There have been widespread evacuations from areas within a 3.5 kilometers (2.17 miles) radius of the volcano (which do not affect any dive centers) but so far few casualties.
Our thoughts go out to all in the area, and are glad to hear that the eruptions are not currently causing any major disruptions to business, travel or property. We will continue to monitor the situation, and if it changes, post updates here.
