Massive Mt. Ruang eruption sends plumes nearly 70,000 feet high

Indonesia's Mount Ruang has erupted at least three times this week, forcing the evacuation of hundreds of people. On Wednesday evening local time, the volcano's eruption shot ash nearly 70,000 feet high, possibly spewing aerosols into the stratosphere, the atmosphere's second layer.

The volcano is part of Indonesia's North Sulawesi province, in the Sangihe Islands archipelago. That puts it about 60 miles north-northeast of Manado, the province's capital.

Indonesia's National Disaster Management Agency posted on X that the situation corresponded to a Level 3 on a 1-through-4 scale, with 4 being the most severe.
