Residents evacuated as Indonesia volcano erupts

Tuesday, 05 Dec, 2022 0

Over 2,000 people fled their homes as a highly active Indonesia volcano spewed miles of volcano ash again.

Mount Semeru in East Java started erupting Sunday and blanketed several villages in ash.

Residents were ordered to stay at least 17 kilometres with ash having reached 12 kilometres from the crater.

Indonesia’s Center for Volcano and Geological Hazard Mitigation raised the alert to the highest level four.

Japan’s Meterological Agency says ash plumes from reached 15 kilometres into the air.

Last year an eruption at the same Indonesia volcano killed dozens.

The Center for Volcano and Geological Hazard Mitigation predicts the current eruption will be larger.

Semeru is part of the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park, which is one of Java’s most popular natural attractions.

There is an advisory for airlines although no major flight disruption has occurred yet.
