Mount Sinabung Volcano Erupts Twice in Three Days Causing Fear in Local Residents

1 Mins read

Mount Sinabung in Indonesia erupted on Monday, sending a dramatic plume of ash 3 miles into the sky.

The eruption emitted a thunderous noise, striking fear into nearby residents and posing health risks.

Take a look at these pictures …

The volcano’s activity has spiked recently … and this was the second eruption in three days.

Nearby communities were covered in ash — up to 2 inches thick — Monday and a local resident reported that the sky went dark for 20 minutes.

In Berastagi, motorists had to switch on headlights in the middle of the day to be able to make their way through the ash.

There were no reported deaths from the eruptions but there is a major concern for lava.

The crater’s alert status remains at the second-highest level.

The volcano is located on the island of Sumatra and has been dormant for four centuries until it erupted in 2010, killing two people. 

It erupted again in 2014 killing 16 people … and again in 2016 killing seven people.

Since then, 30,000 people have been forced to leave their homes around the area.

The people on the island of Sumatra are in our thoughts here at Karmagawa … and we’re asking everyone in our community to join us in prayer. 

We’re thankful that there are no deaths but the increased activity of Mount Sinabung is not a good sign, so we’re hoping that the locals stay safe and take any necessary precautions.
