Panic as one of world’s deadliest volcanoes erupts forcing hundreds to flee

A MAJOR evacuation was sparked this afternoon as one of the world’s most feared volcanoes began erupting, spewing toxic gas and ash clouds over people’s homes.

More than 1,200 people have been evacuated from within a 1.9-mile containment zone around Mount Egon in Kupang, eastern Indonesia – one of the most volcanic parts of the globe.Officials today distributed thousands of gas masks to villagers around the volcano on eastern Flores island amid fears of a major eruption as the choking fumes worsened.All residents living within the containment zone have been ordered to evacuate and roads bringing traffic in have been closed.Mount Egon is considered a very active volcano and is in the top ten of the potentially deadliest in the event of a major eruption.More people living further from the volcano may have to also flee if the situation gets worse, disaster officials have warned.

Last month Express.co.uk reported on fears from scientists that a major eruption of one of the world’s bigest volcanoes is on the cards in the next 80 years, but world leaders are woefully unprepared to deal with the Earth-changing disaster.
