Photos .. volcano Aotolo displaced residents of 26 villages in Indonesia

The Center for Facing Volcanic and Geological Dangers in Indonesia said that a volcano erupted on Sunday in the eastern province of Nusa Tenggara, throwing ash and puffing smoke four kilometers into the air, forcing more than 2,700 residents to seek shelter.


Indonesia has about 130 active volcanoes, which is more than any other country, and while many of them show high levels of activity, it is possible that weeks or even months pass before any of them explode.


A spokesman for the center, Raditya Jati, said in a statement that the eruption of Mount Il Lyotulu, located about 2,600 kilometers east of the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, panicked residents near it.


Gati added that about 2,780 residents of 26 villages have sought shelter, although there are no reports yet of casualties.


Muhammad Ilham, 17, who witnessed the volcano eruption, told Reuters that the nearby residents "were terrified and are still looking for shelter and need money at the moment."


The Volcanic and Geological Hazards Response Center said on its website that the area near the volcano is likely to continue to suffer from "hot clouds, lava, landslides and toxic gas."


The head of the center told Reuters that volcano activity rose to the second highest level on the Indonesian warning system, consisting of four levels, due to "increasing threats."


The center said that there are only three volcanoes at this level, including Merapi volcano on the island of Java and Sinabung volcano in Sumatra, which exploded this month.
