Complete villages were swallowed and taken apart
26 October 2007 - Complete villages were swallowed and taken apart. After almost one and a half year continuous mud from the Lapindo Brantas drilling site near Gempol, just south of the town of Sidoarjo in the province of East Java, tens of thousands were forced to move, hundreds of hectare of village and estates are covered in mud and there is still no end in sight. Every single day some 150,000 cubic meter of hot toxic mud is exhausted by te mud volcano. Ever since it started, contractors have tried to build as many dams as possible and a part of the hot mud is directly diverged to the Brantas river, but that is not a permanent sollution at all. In a series of more than seventy pictures a look at the current situation around the volcano that is in continuous eruption for over a year now.
