Kelut erupts from a deep magma filled fracture set, hence it is very gassy.
The lava dome in 2007 was a very unusual occurrence, & resulted from compression of the Java arc squeezing up magma from the conduit remaining after the bigger then usual 1990 eruption.
This one appears to be a more usual size (VEI 3) and likely left behind a deep crater. Looks like the Javans are giong to need another mole to clear up the drainage tunnels.
This time round it looks like the "sweep" nickname applies to the dry ash rather then boiling mud lahars (as happened in 1919).
