Does anyone have any news from Lembeh and Bunaken: Mount Lokon to the south of Manado is experiencing a major eruption: Sulawesi eruption? It seems to be getting worse.

I was there last week when the first eruption started, we only heard about it from the resort staff - nothing to see in Lembeh and no flight disruptions.

Thanks for the concern, but luckily all OK in both Manado and Lembeh. all flights open and diving unaffected.
