Sumatra volcano unleashes burst of hot ash

MOUNT SINABUNG, INDONESIA (AP) — A rumbling volcano on Indonesia’s Sumatra island unleashed an avalanche of searing gas clouds flowing down its slopes during eruption yesterday. No casualties were reported.

Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra province was shooting smoke and ash as high as 1,000 metres  into the air and hot ash clouds travelled up to three kilometres southeast, Indonesia’s Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (CVGHM) said.
