A volcano in Indonesia erupted in a Tsunami hit region

Soputan volcano in Sulawesi island Indonesia has erupted today, same region that has not yet recovered from the 7.5 earthquake and consequent tsunami on the Sulawesi island last Friday.

The eruption of the volcano continues but the Head of Indonesian National Board for Disaster management Sutopo Purwo Nugroho tweeted, assuring people it was not a cause for concern.

Atleast One Hundred Fifty Six eruptions has been recorded today, 2 October, 2018, throwing sand, ashes and incandescent lava.

Indonesia's volcanologists warned that straovolcano had also been showing signs of restlessness.

The volcanic zone is home to 452 volcanoes. The region also has a series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, volcanic belts, and tectonic plate movements, which make it extremely prone to earthquake and tsunami.
