Since April 26 , the amplitude of tremor increased , and the level of SO2 emitted (Aris) at Bromo / East Java . The alert level has not been raised yet , but it is recommended not to approach the crater within a radius of one kilometer.

The current presence of a small lake in the crater could influence the type of a possible eruption.
