Ash Cloud from Mount Sinabung in Indonesia


In November 2013 the Mount Sinabung volcano erupted again in Indonesia. No one died, but thousands of people had to evacuated from villages near it. The volcano is located in the Karo plateau of the Karo Regency in North Sumatra. The volcano spewed out a 8 km high plume of ash while thousands of residents remained in temporary shelters. Mountain Sinabung also errupted in August 2010, September 2010 and September 2013.

Photographer Roni Bintang took a spectacular photo of the ash cloud being spewed out by Mountain Sinabung on the 18th of November 2013. He captured this in the Sibintun village in the Karo district. It’s truly magnificent and reminds us why we should never underestimate mother nature.
