Jakarta: A volcano in Indonesia erupted on Sunday triggering a flight warning and closure of a local airport.

The explosion threw a column of smoke and ash four kilometres (2.5 miles in the air).

No injuries or damage so far have been reported yet. However, the authorities have raised the volcano’s alert status to it second-highest level. They have also warned of lava flows.

A two-kilometre no-go zone has been expanded to four kilometres. Flights have been advised to steer clear of the area. White volcanic ash rained down on East Nusa Tenggara’s Wunopitu airport. The airport was temporarily closed.

“People are advised to not carry out any activities within a four-kilometre radius from the crater,” Indonesia’s geological agency said.

Nearly 2,700 people from at least 28 villages were evacuated from the slopes of Mount Ili Lewotolok, which is located on Lembata island of East Nusa Tenggara province.
