Airlines issue 'red notice' as Indonesian volcano erupts
This is the frightening moment schoolchildren fled for their lives as huge plumes of volcanic ash spewed from Indonesia's Mount Sinabung. Locals could only watch in horror as the screams of hundreds of children echoed through Tiga Pancur village in North Sumatra.The colossal ash cloud shot five kilometres into the air, with the plume appearing to head towards the Sipandak elementary students. The volcano, one of three currently erupting in Indonesia, was dormant for four centuries before exploding in 2010, killing two people. Another eruption in 2014 killed 16 people, while seven died in a 2016 eruption.There were no fatalities or injuries from the latest morning, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency said.
