Disaster Situation

The Sinabung Volcano has erupted yesterday (May 21, 2016). Seven people have been killed after a volcano in western Indonesia erupted, blasting clouds of volcanic ash 3 km (2 miles) into the sky. The volcano was still spewing ash on Sunday, hampering rescue operations. Rescue trans are still scouring the area, looking for more victims who may have been killed or badly burned by the hot gas and ash clouds released in the eruption.
