An image shows a plume of volcanic ash rising from the crater of Mount Sinabung as seen from Tanah Karo district in North Sumatra province about two hours before its eruption. Prophecy Sign: Luke 21:11 “There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia‘s deadly volcano erupted Wednesday with its biggest blast yet, shooting searing ash miles into the sky and forcing the hasty evacuations of panicked villagers and emergency shelters near the base. Soldiers loaded men, women and crying children into trucks as rocks and debris hurled in the air and down the mountain’s slopes. No new casualties were reported immediately after the booming explosion that lasted more than an hour. “This is an extraordinary eruption, triple from the first” on Oct. 26, said Surono, a state volcanologist.” If you click to the red link below it will take you to a site that shows you all the volcanoes that are erupting.
