A dramatic footage shows Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung has erupted, spewing a massive smoke and ash up to 5,000 meters into the sky.
No casualties were reported after the eruption. Videos surfacing on social media showed little panic among residents as the volcano erupted with ash blowing into the blue sky.
In this regard, a 20-year-old resident of a neighbouring village, said that the situation had since calmed.
“The mountain is not erupting and the ash has decreased,” he said.

According to further details, Sinabug, a 2,460-meter volcano, was dormant for centuries before raring back to life in 2010 when an eruption had killed two people.
After another period of inactivity, it has erupted in 2013 again and has remained highly active since. In 2014, the eruption had killed 16 people, while seven had died in a 2016 blast.
Furthermore, more than any other country, Indonesia has nearly 130 active volcanoes.
Around 30,000 people have been forced to leave homes in the past few years.
