During an eruption in 1966-67, a lava dome was emplaced at the summit of Soputan, and a lava flow, seen steaming here in 1973, descended its flanks.  The eruption began with a vulcanian explosion on May 21, and lava outflow began June 12-15, resumed again in November and continued until November of the following year.
