RARE Footage Mount Sinabung Volcano Erupts every night. – A volcano eruption in Indonesia, Saturday afternoon, was thought to have killed three people and injured several others. Since then, the death toll has risen. Mount Sinabung is located in the North Sumatra province and is one of the 120 active volcanoes that can be found in Indonesia.

It’s located on the Ring of Fire, which is an arc of volcanoes and fault lines located around the Pacific Basin. 23 MAY 2016. Indonesian rescuers searched for survivors in scorched villages and devastated farmlands Monday after a volcano erupted in clouds of searing ash and gas, killing seven and leaving others fighting life-threatening burns. Witnesses have described sheer panic as waves of gas and fine rock were unleashed from Mount Sinabung on Sumatra island Saturday, consuming farmers trying to flee the slopes of the highly active volcano. The fast-moving flows — reaching temperatures of up to 700 degrees Celsius (1,300 Fahrenheit) — incinerated homes and left livestock blackened and peeling. Agustatius Sitepu, the head of the local military in Karo district where the volcano is situated, arrived to scenes of chaos as rescue crews raced to reach those left alive. “The villagers who managed to survive were running around in panic, trying to save themselves,” he told AFP on Monday. “There were only a few dozen. They were terrified. They were covered in ash.” The eruptions were so violent that townships as far away as 12 kilometres (seven miles) were covered in thick layers of ash, he added. Villagers are trying to recover from Saturday’s eruption.
