Sinabung Erupts Third Time in Three Months

Sinabung-EruptsAccording to a new report, Mount Sinabung, north of Sumatra Island, has erupted for the third time in three months. This volcanic eruption was too high that its ashes fled up to five kilometers into the sky. This volcano was inactive from the past four centuries and erupted for the first time in August 2010.

It is located at a distance of about 88 kilometers from the city of Medan. Experts warned the local villagers to rescue themselves as there are chances of again volcanic eruptions at any time.

About 2,500 people have been evacuated because of warning from an expert. It has been reported that there are 130 inactive volcanoes in Indonesia and that too surrounds the infamous Pacific Ring of Fire.

The officials reported that 5,000 people had left their homes in Western Indonesia in the past few days after a series of volcanic eruptions in their country. From the starting of this month, Sinabung has been emitting out hot ash, rocks and torrents of glowing lava up to a height of seven kilometers in the air.

All the experts are in fear that the volcano shows no signs of slowing down, leading to massive destruction across the whole country.
