An explosive eruption on 26 September 2005, the first in historical time from Dabbahu, took place from a 500-m-long, N-S-trending fissure vent in the Da'Ure area on the NE flank of the Dabbahu massif. A small 30-m-wide dome (upper left) formed at the N end of the fissure. The eruption prompted the evacuation of 6,384 people from the settlements of Boyna and Debawo.
