An ash plume rises above Indonesia's Makian volcano in this photo taken on 31 July 1988 from the neighboring Moti Island. The six-day eruption began on 29 July and produced ash plumes that reached 8-10 km altitude. Pyroclastic flows on the 30th reached the coast of the island where 15,000 residents had been evacuated. A lava dome was extruded in the summit crater at the end of the eruption. Photo by Willem Rohi, 1988 (Volcanological Survey of Indonesia).
