In this long-exposure photo by Binsar Bakkara, hot lava flows from the crater of Mount Sinabung as seen from a location about 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) from the volcano, in Tiga Kicat, in Indonesia's North Sumatra province early Tuesday. Lava, hot rocks and ash have spewed from the 2,460-meter (8,070-foot) volcano almost daily since its alert status was raised to the highest level on June 2. According to the monitoring post watching the volcano's activity, lava is continuing to flow into the dome but the small eruptions are keeping its estimated volume relatively constant at about 30 million cubic meters. Growth of the lava dome is a key indicator of a volcano's eruption potential. More than 10,300 villagers whose homes are in the danger zone have been evacuated to safer areas.
