Mount Sinabung spews hot lava and volcanic ash as it is seen from Karo, North Sumatra, Indonesia, Jan. 14, 2014. Thousands of people have been sheltering for months in mosques, churches and government buildings just out of reach of the past months' eruptions. The 2,460-metre volcano had been dormant for 400 years before it erupted in August 2010, forcing more than 30,000 to flee their homes.
