JAKARTA, Oct 12 – Mount Sinabung volcano in Karo district, Indonesia’s North Sumatra province erupted earlier Thursday, spewing a column of ash 2km into the sky, Xinhua news agency reported a disaster agency senior official as saying.

The eruption took place at 2.45am Jakarta time, followed by tremors with ash sliding 2km to the east and southeast, and 1.5km to the south of the crater, said spokesman for the national disaster management Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.

“But the eruption did not leave casualty and trigger fresh evacuation,” he told Xinhua in a text message. On Wednesday, the volcano also erupted, spreading ash by up to 1.5km high, said Sutopo.

Mount Sinabung has been on top alert since July 2, 2015 with no-go zone of 7km in the south, southeast and east of the crater, according to him. Mount Sinabung is one of Indonesia’s 129 active volcanoes. — Bernama
