TRIBUNBATAM.id - The eruption of Mount Sinabung in Karo Regency, North Sumatra Province, occurred again by releasing hot clouds of avalanches as far as 2,500 meters away, Saturday (6/2/2021).

Head of the Mount Sinabung Observation Post, Armen Putra said, the ashes of Mount Sinabung were clearly visible. 

Crater smoke with weak to moderate pressure is observed to be white with a thick intensity and 200-500 meters high above the crater peak. 

"The weather was sunny and cloudy. The wind was blowing weak to moderate to the west and northwest. The temperature was 16-25 degrees Celsius," he said as quoted by Antara, Saturday.
