Indonesia's Marapi volcano unleashed a powerful eruption, accompanied by a thunderous roar, propelling toxic ash to an altitude of nearly 10,000 feet.

On Sunday, the Marapi volcano in Indonesia’s West Sumatra province experienced a significant eruption. This event resulted in a dense cloud of poisonous ash and smoke being propelled nearly 10,000 feet into the sky. The eruption was so powerful that it produced a loud noise that could be heard from miles away, as reported by Indonesia’s disaster management agency.

The National Agency for Disaster Countermeasure (BNPB) of Indonesia issued a press release stating that the eruption of the approximately 9,500-foot volcano began just before 3 p.m. local time on Sunday. The eruption led to a rain of volcanic ash in the Nagari Lasi area of the Canduang District in West Sumatra’s Agam Regency.

According to the BNPB, the ash rain was so intense that it significantly darkened the atmosphere in Nagari Lasi, making it extremely dense.
