A new lava dome in the summit of Paluweh volcano is viewed from the north in 1964. An explosive eruption began on 31 December 1963 and the following day a lava dome was observed between the 1928 dome and the north crater wall. Occasional explosive eruptions accompanied by avalanches from the dome continued into 1966. On 16 March 1966 an event produced ashfall on the W side of the island, damaging cultivated areas.
