23 images Created 13 Feb 2017
Mount Sinabung is one of 120 active volcanoes in Indonesia. After 400 years of being dormant, it recently came to life in 2010 erupting sporadically and spewing hot ash and lava. The 4.3-mile area around the 8070ft volcano was declared by the government to be too dangerous to inhabit. More than 30,000 people living in the surrounding villages had to evacuate and abandon their homes and belongings for safety. Most of the villagers have not returned.
