Indonesia’s Sinabung volcano eruption spouts smoke, ash into sky

Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung volcano eruption on Monday, caused ejecting a string of ash and smoke 5,000 meters (16,400 feet) into the air there by thrusting local communities into darkness with a thick layer of debris. Indonesia is home to about 130 active volcanoes due to its position on the “Ring of Fire”, a belt of tectonic plate boundaries circling the Pacific Ocean where frequent seismic activity occurs.

The Jakarta Post said the ash has destroyed the nearby plantations. Meanwhile, the villagers have been advised to stay 5 kilometres from the crater’s mouth.
