Indonesia Volcano Mount Karangetang Erupts Hours After Massive Earthquake In Japan

JAKARTA, Indonesia

One of Indonesia's most active volcanos, Mount Karangetang, has erupted, sending lava and searing gas clouds tumbling down its slopes. The Indonesia volcano, also located in the 'Ring Of Fire' erupted only hours after the massive earthquake in Japan that triggered a Pacific wide tsunami.

Volcanology official Agus Budianto said Friday that authorities were still trying to evacuate residents living along the slopes of Mount Karangetang.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or serious damage.

The 5,853-foot (1,784-meter) mountain is located on Siau, part of the Sulawesi island chain. It last erupted in August, killing four people.
There is peace in the storm. Jesus said: Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Matthew 11:28
