Published: July 13, 2014

Jakarta, July 13 (IANS) — Mount Sinabung, one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia, has erupted, spewing ash to the sky. No casualty was reported, official said here Sunday.

The volcano located in Karo district of North Sumatra province erupted at 23.05 p.m. Saturday, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman of national disaster management agency, said.

“The height of the eruption could not be determined as it took place at night and there were many clouds,” he told Xinhua by phone.

“Rains of hot ash occurred in several place in Karo district, but it did not trigger further evacuation,” Sutopo added.

The 2,600-metre (8,530-foot) Mount Sinabung last erupted June 29, shooting columns of ash by up to 4,000 metres into the sky.
