Mount Sinabung spews ash cloud in Indonesia

An Indonesian volcano spewed an ash cloud 5 km (3.1 miles) into the sky on Monday in its second eruption in three days, authorities said.

Indonesia’s Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Center said there were no reported fatalities or injuries from the eruption.

Residents have been advised to stay outside of a 3 km radius of the volcano and to wear masks to protect themselves from the ash fallout, the volcanology agency said in a statement.

Sinabung had been inactive for centuries before it erupted again in 2010. An eruption in 2014 killed 16 people, seven died in 2016.
