Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung sent a plume of ash over 11,000 feet above sea level on March 2, Magma Indonesia, the country’s volcanic monitoring agency, said.
In a notice for aviation, the agency warned that the ash cloud was “around 11,072 FT (3,460 M) above sea level.”
Local residents were “advised to wear masks when leaving the house to reduce the health effects of volcanic ash.”
