Collapse of the growing lava dome on 22 November 1994, produced a pyroclastic flow (block-and-ash flow) that swept 7.5 km down the south flank, overrunning several villages and killing 64 people. Six thousand people were evacuated as a result of this eruption. Photo by Panut, 1994 (Volcanological Survey of Indonesia).
