Volcano erupts in Indonesia
- Mount Kelud erupted Thursday night on the Indonesian island of Java. The eruption leveled homes in the area, killing three people. Around 100,000 others have been evacuated for safety.
- CNN updates, “Two died from smoke inhalation while the third was hit by a collapsing wall.”
- The eruption covered Java and surrounding cities in a cloud of grey ash. The lack of visibility lead to the closure of airports in the area.
- The nation’s volcanology agency warned citizens to stay outside a 10-kilometer radius of the volcano in the case of further eruptions, CNN said.
