Propels ash more than 4 miles (7 km) into the sky and blows away much of the mountain’s summit. Includes video.

Indonesia’s Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation  (PVMBG) says the explosion “completely annihilated” the mountain’s peak, it’s ‘lava dome.’

Images released by PVMBG show what the top of the volcano, with more than a million cubic meters shaved off, looks like. Text on top of frame reads “Before Feb. 19, 2018” and text on bottom reads “After Feb. 19, 2018.

Volcanologist Devy Kamil Syahbana said that the lava dome had a volume of at least 1.6 million cubic meters (56.5 million cubic feet).
