Thousands flee as Indonesia's Mount Semeru volcano erupts

At least 300 families were evacuated following the eruption of Mount Semeru volcano in East Java on Saturday, according to Indah Amperawati, Deputy Head of Lumajang District, an area close to the volcano.

He said that most of the burn victims have been evacuated to the Penanggal Primarily Health Center alongside a resident who died in the village of Curah Kobokan...."

The video clip has a scary reminiscents to Mount St Helens


At least 13 people have now died and dozens more are injured after a volcano erupted on Indonesia's Java island on Saturday, emergency authorities said.

Residents were filmed fleeing a giant ash cloud from Mt Semeru.

Pictures show entire villages buried in volcanic ash up to rooftops, and locals have described thick smoke blocking the Sun, leaving them in pitch darkness.

Officials said at least 57 people have been injured, with many suffering severe burns.

A spokesperson for Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency (BNPB) said that the injured were being treated at various hospitals and medical facilities.

The eruption has left at least 11 villages in the Lumajang district coated in volcanic ash, submerging houses and forcing some evacuees to seek shelter in mosques and makeshift shelters.
