Volcano Erupts In Indonesia Days After Devastating Earthquake And Tsunami..

The eruption of Mount Soputan, on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, comes just days after the 7.5-magnitude earthquake and tsunami struck Palu, Indonesia killing more than 1,300 people.

The eruption of Mount Soputan on Sulawesi island in central Indonesia prompted authorities to warn of possible lava flows and ash clouds that could impact air travel. Evacuations were ordered for those living within a few miles of the volcano.
The eruption spewed ash 19,700 feet into the sky.

Scientists have not yet determined whether the eruption was directly triggered by the earthquake in central Sulawesi on Friday. However, Indonesian news portal Tempo cited a government volcanologist who suspected it was.
