Mount Sinabung, January 2014 Eruption, Karo Regency, North Sumatra, Indonesia

This volcano spewed a 7-km (4.3-mile) column of ash into the air, prompting authorities to impose a 3-km evacuation radius.
The military helped evacuate 1,293 people from four villages around the volcano, which is 88 km from the provincial capital, Medan. The number of evacuees was expected to rise.
No casualties were reported.
About 14,000 people were forced the evacuate when the volcano showed signs of activity in September. Sinabung is one of nearly 130 active volcanoes in the world's fourth-most populated country, which straddles the "Pacific Ring of Fire".
