South Sumatra, Suoh Volcano
summit elevation 1000 m
(Also called Pematang Bata). The volcano is located in south Sumatra.
A major earthquake (Mag 7.2) on February 15, 1994 triggered a phreatic eruption of Suoh Volcano 2 weeks later. This is the second time that this has happened at Suoh Volcano. The first was in 1933 when the volcano ejected 0.2 cubic km of tephra. The eruption formed two craters with the northernmost measuring 2 km x 1.5 km, and the southern 1 km x 0.75 km. A roaring noise came from 100 vents and the eruption was heard 660 km away in Java.
