JARAKTA: At least 13 people have died and thousands displaced after Mount Semeru, a volcano in Indonesia’s East Java province, erupted on Saturday, CNN has reported.

Indonesia’s National Board for Disaster Management said Sunday the eruption had wounded 98 others after it covered villages with ash and left people to run from billowing clouds of debris, it said.

At least 300 families were evacuated following the eruption, according to Indah Amperawati, deputy head of Lumajang District.

In its statement Sunday, the BNPB said search and rescue efforts were ongoing, but did not specify the number of people who were still reported missing, according to CNN report.

Authorities have converted schools, mosques, village halls and village houses into evacuation centers, the statement said.
