Indonesia's Mount Barujari Volcano Erupts, Trapping Tourists

More than 200 foreign tourists were feared trapped on an Indonesian volcano Wednesday after the peak erupted and sent a plume of ash 6,500 feet in the air, officials said.

More than 1,000 people were evacuated after Mount Barujari erupted just before 3 p.m.Tuesday (3 a.m. ET), officials said.

Rescuers initially were looking for at least 389 tourists — 333 of them foreigners — who had registered to climb the mountain since Sunday, according to a statement by the country's National Disaster Management Authority issued late Tuesday.

Around 120 of these hikers, most of them foreigners, were subsequently located and were heading down the mountain Wednesday, local search-and-rescue official Heronimus Guru told The Associated Press.

There have been no injuries reported so far — but more than 250 people remained unaccounted for.
Indonesian officials haven't released details about the nationalities of those missing. The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta said it didn't know whether any of the them were American nationals.

Mount Barujari is a "baby volcano" that sits inside the crater of Mount Rinjani, a 12,224-foot-high volcano on Lombok island.



  1. Na wa ooo. Oyibo people with ventures. I pray God bring them all safely.

    Indonesia with volcano everytime and people will still go there, testing nature

  2. Curiosity killed the cat. I'm sure out of 250 tourists missing, over 200 would be Americans and Europeans. These people live for the thrills and excitement of these occurrences. They probably knew all along that the volcano was set to erupt so went there to experience it up close and personal. I love thier guts and enthusiasm for adventure.

  3. Trouble sleep, yanga go bite him tail

  4. And some people want to roast meat on another's ok. I pray they find the remaining people

  5. Whether baby volcano or gwegs volcano, I aint going close to it. People put their life at so much risk. I wonder how their families will feel now.

  6. Who send them message? Can't come and be feeling pity for people wey no pity them sef. Make them RIP.

    *hangs leg on the cupboard*

  7. Oyibo and adventures.

  8. Onyinbo people and their wahala...
