Volcanic Alert Status

Indonesia consists of more than 17,000 islands, some of which have volcanic mountains.

According to Kompas, 17 of 18 volcanic mountains have been declared by the Indonesian Geological Agency as on Alert Status (Level II). 

Among those mountains are Bromo Mountain, Anak Krakatoa, Batur, Kaba, Semeru, Slamet, Sangeang Api, Rinjani Rokatenda, Soputan, Dukono, Lokon, Gamalama, Papandayan, and Kerinci.
Considering the above alert status, visitors are warned not to come within one kilometers from their craters due to the dangerous toxic gas emission.

You are covered in volcanoes as a country. We have a lot in NZ, though most are inactive. We have many earthquakes in NZ.

Glad I don't live near a vulcano. It would scare me. :) But here in my country we live below sealevel. Maybe thats scare other people too. :)

Take care!

We have big & active volcanic mountains here.
I read and heard that in NZ you have been utilizing power from vocanic activities (e.g geysers) for the benefit of humans. That great.

I think that every country has its own natural plus-minus.
