Indonesian Village Flees As Massive Volcano Erupts

A volcano in eastern Indonesia erupted Sunday, sending a column of ash as high as 4,000 meters into the sky and forcing thousands of people to leave their homes. Mount Ili Lewotolok has been erupting off and on since October 2017.

Nearly 2,800 people from at least 28 villages fled from the slopes of Mount Ili Lewotolok, which is located on Lembata island of East Nusa Tenggara province, as the volcano began erupting, said Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesperson Raditya Jati. There were no reports of deaths or injuries from the eruption.
