    A massive volcano has erupted in Indonesia, prompting the evacuation of over 100,000 people from its most populated island. The eruption could be heard over one hundred miles away and the ash cloud has reached eighteen miles high, covering multiple cities in debris. Six airports are closed, including three international airports, because of minimal visibility.

    So far three people have been confirmed killed, and an unknown number of people are injured. I haven't been able to find a legit video of the volcano, but I will add it once I come across one.

    There was video played on the ABC affiliate here in Philly{ 6ABC.Com} showing the eruption and the black ash falling on everything, it doesn't look good for the residents there.

    They have volcanoes erupt all of the time, but this one was a big one! Thanks for the link, Tony. I saw that video, but I don't trust the source and felt that it would most likely have been removed from our website. I was able to find a few from legit sources that are on our Volcano page.
