Mount Sinabang volcano erupted, erupting volcanoes about 5,000 meters ,high, erupting lava and accumulating ash
Indonesia’s Mount Sinabang volcano erupted on Tuesday, erupting volcanoes about 5,000 meters (16,400 feet) high, erupting lava and accumulating ash in nearby villages.
Volcanic eruptions in North Sumatra province have increased compared to last week, when authorities recorded 13 times ashes.
The 2,600-meter (8,530-foot) Sinabang volcano erupted in 2010, before it had been dormant for four centuries, killing two people. Another blast in 2014 killed 17 people, while a 2016 blast killed seven.
One of the two volcanoes currently emerging in Indonesia has since become sparsely alive.
In the last few years, about 30,000 people have been forced to flee their homes due to volcanic eruptions in the vicinity of Sinabang.
Sinabung is one of more than 120 active volcanoes in Indonesia, located above the “ring of fire”, a volcanic eruption and encircling the Pacific Ocean.
