  • Indonesia has five volcanoes erupting all at once !

    The government has had to close down three major airports and has also evacuated over 13,000 people since the volcanic aruptions have been going on. they said that there is no unusual reason to explain why five volcanoes are all active at one, but the ash clouds that they are spewing out will probably be affecting the weather for some time to come.
    When a lot of ash is in the air, it clouds over the sun, thus making the weather cooler. Maybe, this is not a totally bad thing, since we seem to be having extreme heat and dought in so many places on the earth right now.

    Wow according to the article, Indonesia has about 130 active volcanoes. That is probably why it is not an unusual occurence having five volcanoes erupting at the same time, for them at least. Good thing residents near these volcanoes were evacuated already. With budding disasters like this, it is important to prevent further damage by making sure that the likely affected people are removed from the dangerous premises. I do hope this incident will not take any lives!

      A very commendable job by the Indonesian Government on swiftly evacuating people around the volcanic land to safer places. 5 volcanoes erupting at the same time is a really bad news, but the quick and decisive actions taken by the government averted the huge loss of lives that would've followed if they were careless in the slightest.

        In Indonesia as on 2012, 127 active volcanoes and about 5 million people active within the danger zones. Top 5 Volcanoes that are going to create huge losses in Indonesia.
        1. Mount Merapi
        2. Mount Bromo
        3. Mount Semeru
        4. Gunung Anak Krakatau
        5. Mount Sinabung Sumatra
        Around 50-60 volcanoes will erupt each month. As % volcanoes erupting all at once in Indonesia is not yet confirmed one or not too danger because many small volcanoes will erupt every day or month.
