    SS: mount sinabung is very active right now .. this volcano is located ne the super volcano in indonesia as can see in the above maps .. the indonesia region has calmed down during the long solar minimum we are having right now. except for this volcano . if toba were to erupt it would be a worldwide event .. the plume would be wrapped around the entire planet and ash would darken the skies . as can see the villagers are running from the volcano . they should not build their villages next to volcanos that are active when they know they are going to get full eruption .. i keep using the same maps because this volcano erupts so often i don’t feel like making new maps every time it erupts .

    Ash spewing from Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung formed a massive cloud around the mountain on Tuesday. The volcano in the province of North Sumatra has been erupting sporadically for several months, damaging crops and triggering the evacuation of more than 19,000 villagers. An eruption in 2010 killed two people and caught scientists off guard because the volcano had been quiet for four centuries. (Wochit)

    Mount Sinabung, a volcano in Indonesia’s North Sumatra province, erupted 24 times Friday, shooting a column of ash about 4,000 metres to the sky and forcing further evacuation, an official said. Powerful burst of ash spread from the crater of rumbling volcano, located in Karo district. The hot ash slid off to the southeast, scaling up the number of people fleeing the eruption to close to 25,000 Friday from 22,700 a few days ago, the official added. (Wochit)

Mount Sinabung continued to spew volcanic ash on Thursday as thousands of residents remained in temporary shelters fearful of more eruptions. Mount Sinabung’s last eruption on Tuesday lasted about 20 minutes and sent volcanic ash 3,000 metres into the sky from its crater, authorities said, adding that there were no casualties as everyone in the nearby villages had been moved to shelters. Authorities have put the area surrounding the 2,460-metre high volcano on alert level three, recommending people not to be within a radius of three kilometres from the crater.

          SS: mount sunabung has erupted during the weekend following mount lokon eruption five days prior .. the interesting about mount sunabung is it’s close proximity to the super-volcano TOBA. this was the region that was very active during the previous solar cycle before our current non-existent solar maximum. the plume hasn’t been growing like it was although it appears to be awakening again. if we see a lot of activity in this region right here around toba and indoesia then it would indicate that the superplume has commenced expanding and growing.
