Mt. Kelud Volcano Erupts; Surroundings Evacuated

 

 

A volcano In Java, Indonesia has erupted, sending huge ball of ash and sand 17 km into the air.

 

 

Mount Kelud is 140 km south of Indonesia's second biggest city Surabaya, a major industrial centre. The cloud of gases and dust was visible from 9 km and forced the shutdown of airports in surrounding cities. Mercifully, the eruption caused minimal damage to buildings but had left 3 to 5 cm of ash and sand on roads.
