Several villages in Lumajang Regency, East Java, were inundated by cold lava floods from Mount Semeru on Sunday evening (Jan 2, 2022) that destroyed the emergency bridges connecting villages.
 
The Lumajang Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD Lumajang) head of rehabilitation and reconstruction Joko Sambang remarked that the lava stream was seen making its way into Gondoruso Village at noon.
 
“The cold lava stream brought along with it mud and rocks,” Sambang stated on January 2.
 
“The cold lava flood following the eruption of Mount Semeru is caused by high-intensity rain in the region,” he noted.
 
According to a report from the Semeru observatory post, the flood was detected by the seismograph from 10:48 Western Indonesia Time (WIB) and lasted until 16:02 WIB.
 
The cold lava flood destroyed several infrastructures that connected villages and inundated heavy machinery that were mobilized for post-eruption evacuations. Fortunately, its operators were able to evacuate themselves before the flood struck.
