Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung erupts for third time, covering villages in ash


November 7, 2013 – INDONESIA – Mount Sinabung in Indonesia has erupted for the third time in as many months, spewing ash over 4 miles into the air and covering nearby villages in gray powder. The volcanic activity began on Sunday and more than 1200 people have been evacuated so far. The volcano surprised scientists in 2010 when it rumbled back to life after being dormant for centuries.  Sinabung is one of 120 active volcanoes in the country which is located on the Pacific “Ring of Fire.” –NBC
