In Indonesia, at least 15 people are dead and over two dozen are missing after Mount Semeru, one of the island nation’s most active volcanoes, erupted Saturday, spewing blistering hot ash and volcanic gas into the sky over the East Java province. Some 3,000 homes and dozens of schools have been damaged. Over 1,700 people have been evacuated, but rescue operations were suspended today as Mount Semeru continued to spew hot clouds of ash.
