Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra erupted on Sunday at 00.15 a.m.

Antara news agency reported local villagers did not expect the eruption as the geophysics and meteorology agency just declared a normal status for the mountain.

Villagers fled home to a safer location, but no police officers yet helped the evacuation process.

On Saturday, the 2,400 meter-high mountain showed its volcanic activity by spewing black clouds.
