Indonesia said it had safely evacuated hundreds of people living near Mount Karangetang off northern Sulawesi island as authorities issued a red alert on Saturday following its eruption.
Nearly 600 people live in three villages four kilometers from the volcano's western peak, from which lava continues to spew as it disgorges heat clouds, government volcanologist Kristianto said.
"The volcano is still in the phase of eruption. We detected lava flow which reached as far as 1,800 meters," he added.
