The Sinabung volcano situated in North Sumatra, Indonesia, is releasing more and more plumes of smoke, hot ash up to 3,500m and rocks into the air, posing a high threat of possibly erupting. The residents of neighbouring villages had to leave their homes and were evacuate to a temporary shelter. The 2,600-metre high volcano last erupted in 2014, killing at least 17 people.
