From March 3 to 8, gray-black eruptive plumes rose 200 m above the summit of Semeru, interspersed with white gas plumes 100 m high. The glowing material was ejected 10-50 m above the summit; lava flows 500 to 1,000 m long continued to be active in the Kembar, Bang and Kobokan watersheds (on the S flank).
Lava flows on the southern flank remain active, currently measuring around 500 m-1000 m.
The alert level remained at 2 (on a scale of 1 to 4), and the public was reminded to stay outside the general radius of 1 km from the summit and 4 km on the SSE flank.

In the Reykjanes Peninsula, on March 12, 2020 at 10:26 a.m., an M5.2 earthquake occurred approximately 5 km NE of Grindavík. Several aftershocks have been detected. Today's earthquake is the largest earthquake detected on the Reykjanes Peninsula since October 2013 when an M5.2 earthquake occurred near Reykjanestá. The earthquake was felt in large areas of southwest Iceland.
Two earthquakes occurred at 6:40 p.m. (M3.4) and 6:42 p.m. (M3.3) about 3 km ENE of Grindavík. Reports have been received from Grindavík that they were felt there.
Uplift is no longer observed, which is likely due to the cessation of the influx of magma. The phase of uncertainty declared by the Civil Protection is still in force.
