Reports say the volcano on Mount Lokon which started erupting at around 10 am yesterday is the biggest since late June this year.

There are dozens of active volcanoes on the Indonesian Archipelago which straddles tectonic fault lines known as the “Ring of Fire” between the Pacific and  Indian Oceans.
