Volcano Erupts In Sumatra | Volcano Erupts In Sumatra | 10000 Flee. Thousands of Indonesians were evacuated from the slopes of a volcano on Sunday after it erupted for the first time in more than 400 years, spewing out lava and sending smoke and dust 1500 meters (5000 feet) into the air. Mount Sinabung, in the north of the island of Sumatra, began erupting around midnight after rumbling for several days, prompting some villagers to panic before the mass evacuation got under way. Indonesia is on the so-called Pacific Rim of Fire, an arc of volcanoes and geological fault lines triggering frequent earthquakes around the Pacific Basin. The eruption triggered the highest red volcano alert. Two people died, one from breathing problems and the other from a heart attack, and two suffered injuries in road accidents as trucks, ambulances and buses were mobilized in the rescue operation. "This is the first time since 1600 that Sinabung has erupted and we have little knowledge in terms on its eruptive patterns," said Surono, head of Indonesia's vulcanology center. Authorities took at least 12000 people from high risk areas on the slopes of the 2460-meter volcano to temporary shelters. Local TV showed showed women and children wearing face masks in cramped tents. The area around the volcano is largely agricultural. "Since this is the first eruption we've had in Sinabung, we're anticipating residents to remain at the shelters for at least a week while waiting for further status alert ...

To see Tom Curren handle this HEAVY wave like its nothing is just friggin incredible. Pics from my trip are here.

Extreme Coffee -- Sumatra September 2007 It's the most exotic, rare and expensive coffee in the world. Kopi Luwack which comes from the dung of the Common Palm Civet or Luwack is so rare some believe it doesn't exist. Much of the coffee which can sell for more than $50 dollars a cup in New York, Hong Kong or Tokyo has been cut or is simply fake. The ABC's foreign affairs editor Peter Cave is a coffee lover who has been seeking the real thing for many years, so he headed to the mountains of Sumatra to track down the exotic brew and sample it with the farmers who collect the civet dropping from the forest floor and who are experimenting with taming and domesticating the increasingly endangered Luwak.

Sumatra 1933 Sumatra was known in ancient times by the Sanskrit names of Swarnadwipa ("Island of Gold") and Swarnabhumi ("Land of Gold"), due likely to the gold deposits of the island's highlands. Arab geographers referred to the island as Lamri (Lamuri, Lambri or Ramni) in the 10-13th centuries, in reference to a kingdom near modern day Banda Aceh which was the first landfall for traders. Late in the 14th century the name Sumatra became popular, in reference to the kingdom of Samudra which was a rising power. European writers in the 19th century found that the indigenous inhabitants did not have a name for the island. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Die Insel Sumatra (gesprochen Sumátra) oder Sumatera (indonesische Schreibweise) ist mit 473.000 km² die sechstgrößte Insel der Welt. In diese Fläche sind die vorgelagerten Inseln mit zusammen 50.000 km² eingerechnet.

Surviving Sumatra - Indonesia October 2009 After the earthquake in Sumatra all that remains of a village of over 400 people is a single bed frame. Yet more extraordinary than the scale of the disaster is the resilience of the Sumatran people. Hospitals are filled with injured children, homeless people cower under trees to escape the monsoon rains, and the death toll is rising rapidly. "I'm 91 years of age. I've never seen anything as bad as this, tells an elderly man sitting amongst the remains of his hotel. Yet somehow the people remain philosophical. They've lost everything and they're still offering you a cup of tea. Produced by SBS, distributed by Journeyman Pictures
