The upper flanks of Kelud volcano were swept by pyroclastic flows during the 1919 eruption. The brief eruption the night of August 19-20 produced pyroclastic flows and devastating lahars that totally destroyed 104 villages and killed 5110 people. This view of the upper Sumber Petung valley shows the completely devegetated upper slopes of the volcano.
