Mount Papandayan again threatened. Since its status was raised to level III, until now there has been no decision from the government to lower the status of Papandayan. Mountain, located in Garut was once swallowed 40 villages with 2951 people in 1773. Spontaneous, cone of the mountain disappears without warning.

Manuk crater temperature continues to rise, the latest on August 12, recorded the temperature of the crater is reached 107.5. The most feared thing happened on this mountain is nature without notice. Phreatic eruptions can happen anytime with poison gas. Accumulation of material erupted to 3 million cubic in km threatening cold lava flood in the rainy season.

Residents are asked not to approach the crater to a radius of 2 km from the crater Papandayan complex. Beware of the dangers of cold lava flood that flows through the river of Ciparugpug and Ciberum. Do not be goaded by the issues that are misleading. Always coordinate with local governments.
