A volcano erupted in Indonesia’s North Sumatra province spewing a dark ash cloud about 2,000 metres in height, above the crater.

The Mount Sinabung eruption lasted 42 minutes and the ash led to an orange aviation alert, the second highest after red and which warns of potential flight risks in the area, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesperson for the National Board for Disaster Management.

Images released by Nugroho showed the dark cloud moving in a southwest direction towards villages that have been covered by a white layer of ash, Efe news reported.
