Mount Sinabung in Indonesia continued to spew volcanic ash on Thursday as thousands of residents remained in temporary shelters fearful of more eruptions. Mount Sinabung's last eruption on Tuesday lasted about 20 minutes and sent volcanic ash 10,000 feet into the sky from its crater, authorities said, adding that there were no casualties as everyone in the nearby villages had been moved to shelters.
