A Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 occurred Friday, with the volcano spewing tons of molten lava and ash, captured in hauntingly beautiful photos. The initial Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 for the month, the latest in a recent set of eruptions of the Indonesian volcano took place Wednesday afternoon.

Residents are forced to flee as the Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 has reached its fourth successive day, reports the Daily Mail.

The Friday Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 reportedly released an ash cloud which reached 2.5 kilometers (1.9 miles) into the sky.

A 2,460-metre volcano on the island of Sumatra, the volcano has remained dormant for 4 centuries before erupting in August 2010. The Mount Sinabung eruption brought the deaths of at least two people, as well as 30,000 getting displaced.

The volcano had been active again in September 2013, and the initial Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 happened in February.

That eruption killed 16 people and caused hundreds of people to flee their homes. A Freelance photographer by the name of Sutanta Aditya captured the Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 in hauntingly beautiful images, the Washington Post reports.

According to Indonesian authorities, flowing ash and molten lava has now reached four and half kilometers down the slope, while ash clouds have reached three kilometers into the sky. The devastation is already threatening nearby populated villages.

The upsurge status after the most recent Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 remains at the third-highest level, according to the Associated Press. People nearest the volcano are advised to prepare in case an evacuation is needed when conditions worsen.

The latest series of Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 that started Oct. 5 forced hundreds to leave their homes. However, this occurrence isn't entirely uncommon for the people of Indonesia.

Located in the Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin, the Asian country has about 130 active volcanoes, which is more than any other country.

The Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 has apparently been occurring since September. Despite the unpredictability of the volcanoes, farmers are reportedly hard to keep away since the mountains' slopes are highly fertile.

A 2010 Mount Merapi eruption killed 324 people in just over two months. Merapi is, according to the Daily Mail, Indonesia's most volatile volcano.

Mount Sinabung eruption 2014 is highly likely to have heated the air directly above it, caused by caused by the burning 'pyroclastic flow' from moving pillars of ash and air.
