On Sunday, Mount Sinabung on the north of Sumatra island erupted; and on Monday it erupted again.

The volcano was inactive for four centuries or four hundred years; since 1600.

It shot ash 2 km or 1.5 miles into the air.

The eruption triggered the highest red volcano alert.

About 21,000 people left their houses because it is very dangerous to be near a volcano if it erupts.

Hot lava and burning rocks from the volcano can burn houses, trees and everything on its way down the volcano.

Volcanic ash covered trees, plants, houses and everything in the area.

People leaving the area were also covered by ash.

Some flight to Medan and Sibolga were delayed.

Indonesia in on the Pacific Ring Of Fire.

In April, 2010 the volcanic ash from Eyjafilljallajokull glacier in Iceland closed airspace and airports all over Europe and thousands and thousands of passengers were stranded all over the world.

I wonder if Malaysian airspace and airport will be closed if the volcanic ash problems get worse …

Mount Karangetang, a volcano in Siau, Sulawesi erupted on Friday.

Mount Karangetang is one of Indonesia’s most active volcano.

1,110 degree Fahrenheit (600 Celsius) clouds of gas and hot lava was spit out from the mountain.

Ash and hot lava destroyed houses and other buildings.

A bridge and road is badly damaged.

Four people were missing and feared dead.

Five others were hospitalized, one in critical condition.

The mountain last erupted in July 2006.

Volcano eruption is a natural disaster.

Volcano Spews Lava As Eruption Looms

Mayon volcano in the Philippine spews lava as eruption looms.


Mayon is the most active volcano in Philippine.

People around the area had fled their homes.

The government wants everybody to move from the area near the volcano because the eruption can kill many people and it will be a big disaster.


The lava is very, very hot and during a volcano eruption burning lava will come out from the volcano and destroy things along the way.


The Philippine Institute on Volcanology and Seismology was considering ratcheting up the volcano alert to the highest level, which would mean an eruption was underway, the Philippine News Agency (PNA) reported.

Mayon is 500km south of the Philippine capital of Manila.

There are other active volcanoes in the Philippine.

I think after Mayon there will not be any volcano eruption in the Philippine for a while but not forever.
