Indonesia: Mount Semeru volcano erupts as locals filmed fleeing 40,000ft cloud of ash

Mount Semeru, one of Indonesia’s most active volcanoes, has erupted, spewing a thick ash cloud almost 2,500 metres into the air.

The Indonesian vulcanological agency recorded “very high levels of the hazardous main hazard gases” rising to 40,000ft on the western rim of the volcano.

The agency said on Tuesday the eruption, which began on Sunday, had temporarily left 1,600 Indonesians homeless. A village resident, Ridwan, said the ash cloud closed roads and caused panic among locals who fled to shelters, while others tried to reach their homes.

Sener Mustiah, the head of Indonesia’s geophysics agency, said in a statement that the volcanic activity was still ongoing on Tuesday and that there was still a chance that a larger eruption could occur. He added that “possible eruption of Puud Sumitro [Mount Sumitro], or even the whole mountain, does not have any harm”.
