Mount Sinabung, Indonesia volcano eruption: WATCH terrifying moment children flee HUGE ash cloud

MOUNT Sinabung erupted on Monday and a terrifying video shows the moment schoolchildren were forced to flee from a huge ash plume that rose 4.3 miles into the sky. Sroll Down For VIDEO...
Indonesia was plunged into darkness on Monday as Mount Sinabung erupted and up to 30,000 residents were forced to flee the danger zone.

Shocking footage from Imam Mahmudi shows children running from a school in the village of Karo in Indonesia as Mt Sinabung let out a huge ash cloud and shrouded villages into darkness.

Local villages were covered in ash following the eruption from Mount Sinabung, which remained dormant for over four centuries before showing activity again in August 2010.

Mount Sinabung sent volcanic ash over 23,000 feet into the air, covering a large area of the northern region of Indonesia.

Mount Sinabung: 30,000 residents were forced to evacuate the danger zone
The country's National Disaster Mitigation Agency has confirmed that there are currently no fatalities or injuries.

Locals have been encouraged by the agency to remain outside the four-mile danger zone surrounding the volcano’s crater.

The 8,071-feet tall mountain is among Indonesia's most active and dangerous volcanoes.

Thousands were evacuated and more than 12 people were killed when Mount Sinabung erupted in early 2014.

Flights warnings were issued on Monday as the Volcano Observatory Notice for Aviation (VONA) raised warning levels to red, its highest level.

But flights remain operational due to wind direction to and from Indonesia’s Kualanamu International Airport in Medan.

Indonesia sits on the “Ring of Fire” a large area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where volcanic eruptions and earthquakes are frequent.

Mt Sinabung is currently one of three erupting volcanoes in Indonesia.
