Indonesia: Series of Volcanic Eruptions at Mt. Sinabung

Nearly 20,000 people fled their homes in Sumatra as the island’s Mt. Sinabung volcano erupted at least nine times Dec. 30. The volcano shot lava and gas 23,000 feet into the air and a three-mile danger zone has been enforced around the crater. The volcano was dormant for 400 years before erupting in 2010, killing two people. Officials have reported an increase in activity in recent months and visitors should take caution while in the area. On the island of Bali, tourists were warned of a different threat after a python killed a security guard at a hotel near Sanur beach. The snake is estimated to be 15 feet long and escaped into the bushes near the Bali Hyatt. If spotted, the snake should be avoided and reported to officials immediately.
