Mount Sinabung volcano of Indonesia erupts; Observatory issues alert; No casualties
The Sinabung explosion at 13:20 on Wednesday lasted 12 minutes. Hot ash and smoke spewed by the crater went up 4,500 m. The pyroclastic flows reached east and southeast by 1,000 m. The observatory has asked people to wear masks outdoors in case of an ash rain and clear roofs of ash and be wary of lahars.

JAKARTA, July 29: Indonesia's Mount Sinabung volcano has erupted, spewing molten lava and sending thick gray columns of hot ash and smoke 4,500 m (7 km / 20,000 ft altitude) into the sky. The plumes drifted towards the east.

The explosion, lasting 12 minutes, took place at 13:20 on Wednesday. The hot avalanches called pyroclastic flows reached east and southeast by 1,000 m. A level three alert is already in force since the eruption in 2019.

The volcano observatory has asked people to wear masks outdoors in case of an ash rain. Roofs must cleaned of ash lest it will collapse due to the weight of ash. Those near rivers must mind lahars (debris flow).

The volcano is situated in Karo, North Sumatra. After lying dormant for 400 years, it first erupted in 2010 claiming two lives and has been active since then. Sixteen people were killed in 2014 and seven in 2016. And the last eruption was in May this year.

There were no casualties as the area around had already been evacuated since the recent events. The villagers were evacuated up to 5 km from the crater. Till date around 30,000 people have left the place.

Indonesia sits on a Pacific 'Ring of Fire'. There are 120 volcanoes in Indonesia. The ocean basin is prone to seismic activity.
