The Old Bali Blog « A sleeping giant wakes: Sumatra's Mount Sinabung erupts
A major volcano in Sumatra - dormant for over four centuries - is stirring.
Gunung (Mount) Sinabung roused itself from a 400-year slumber in 2010, blew anew in 2011 and killed 14 in 2013. The giant woke again on 29 June 2014, spewing lava and scorching lahar clouds into the vicinity.
Things are hotting up on the Pacific Ring of Fire.
Late May saw Sumbawa's Gunung (Mount) Sangeang Api erupt. In mid-June three more Sulawesi volcanoes were put on alert. And at the end of June two Magnitude 5+ earthquakes hit Gorontalo and Ternate.
