February 1, 2014 Mount Sinabung Erupts Killing at Least 14:  An Indonesian volcano that has been rumbling for months unleashed a major eruption on Saturday, killing 14 people just a day after the authorities allowed thousands of villagers who had been evacuated to return to its slopes, saying that activity was decreasing, officials said.

Among the dead on Mount Sinabung were a local television journalist and four high-school students and their teacher who were visiting the mountain to see the eruptions up close. Authorities said they feared that the death toll would rise.


The volcano’s  eruption caught many scientists off guard because Mount Sinabung had been quiet for four centuries.  (Credits – The New York Times).
