Volcano erupts in Indonesia, 100,000 evacuated, airports closed

Published: 02.14.14, 09:13 / Israel News

A volcano erupted on the heavily populated Indonesian island of Java, sending a huge plume of ash and sand 17 km (10 miles) into the air and forcing the evacuation on Friday of more than 100,000 people and closure of five airports.

 

Indonesia's national disaster agency ordered the evacuation of all the families living within a 10-km (6-mile) radius of Mount Kelud. The volcano is 90 km (54 miles) south of Indonesia's second biggest city Surabaya, a major industrial centre. (Reuters)
