Indonesia's Mount Sinabung erupted on Monday, belching a massive column of ash and smoke 5,000 meters into the air and coating local communities in debris. The volcano on Sumatra island has been rumbling since 2010 and saw a deadly eruption in 2016. Activity had picked up in recent days, including a pair of smaller eruptions at the weekend.

Villages around Indonesia's Mount Sinabung are covered with thick ashes after the volcano erupts. There were no reports of injuries or deaths from Monday morning's blast, but authorities warned of possible lava flows and more eruptions.
