A vol­cano in cen­tral In­done­sia has erupted, eject­ing col­umns of thick ash as high as 7,500 me­ters into the sky. Mount Sop­utan, lo­cated on the north­ern part of Su­lawesi is­land, erupted twice Sun­day morn­ing, said the na­tional dis­as­ter agency’s spokesman, Su­topo Purwo Nu­groho. He said in an­tic­i­pa­tion of hot ash and lava slid­ing down the vol­cano’s slopes, lo­cal res­i­dents have been urged to avoid ac­tiv­i­ties near the moun­tain.
