Indonesia Mount Sinabung has erupted four times in the past two weeks. It has not only claimed over 50 lives, but engulfed the island of Sumatra in billowing smoke and incandascent lava.

Mount Sinabaug has lay dormant for 400 years when sporadic eruptions began in 2010. It is now among more than 120 active volcanoes in Indonesia, which is prone to seismic upheaval due to its location on the “Pacific Ring of Fire”.

Here are some photos which display the terrifying scenes in Sumatra.
