On 17 August, Indonesian officials banned climbing on the Mount Kaba Volcano. Since the 7.3 earthquake occurred on 3 June 2000, the seismic activity at Mount Kaba has increased. All three of Mount Kaba's craters have been releasing smoke. Geologists are drilling around the craters to channel lava, steam, and gas out in an attempt to prevent an eruption.
