A new eruption of the Sinabung volcano in Indonesia:
The volcano on the island of Sumatra projected smoke and ash up to 1,000 meters high, which travelled up to 3 km to the southeast, according to the Indonesian Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Center. Villagers were advised to stay at least 3km away from the crater.

The 2,600-meter mountain has been showing intense activity since last year. In recent years, around 30,000 people have been forced to leave their homes in the area around Sinabung. Sinabung is among more than 120 active volcanoes in Indonesia, the country is subject to earthquake shocks due to its location on the Pacific "Belt of Fire", an arc of volcanoes and fault lines that surround the Pacific Basin.

Indonesia's Mount Merapi volcano spewed avalanches of hot clouds Thursday morning as more than 500 residents were evacuated from its fertile slopes. The fog was covering the volcano at the time, so the distance the pyroclastic clouds spread was not visually observed. The amplitude record and seismic recording data from the Geological Disaster Technology Research and Development Center estimated the hot clouds spread less than 1 kilometer (0.6 miles) from the crater.
Local authorities on Thursday evacuated more than 500 people living on the mountain in Magelang district on Java Island.

Residents of two eastern Caribbean islands have been advised to evacuate their homes after volcanoes that have been quiet for decades came to life. Officials issued alerts in the island chain of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, home to more than 100,000 people, as scientists scrambled to study the renewed activity. The government raised the alert level to orange for La Soufriere volcano, indicating it could erupt within 24 hours and recommended that people living nearby leave their homes immediately.
CASTRIES, St. Lucia (Reuters) - Residents of the eastern Caribbean island chain of St. Vincent and the Grenadines were advised to evacuate their homes on Thursday after a volcano, dormant for decades, came back to life and began spewing ash.
