Strange Sounds – July 21, 2017
About 16 houses were destroyed in Sukatendel Village by a powerful lahar flowing down the slopes of the eruptive Sinabung volcano in Indonesia.
This new footage of the raging water transporting rocks, ash and mud is just apocalyptic.
The video features a terrifying lahar that flooded a village a day after the eruption of Mount Sinabung on April 18, 2017, after the rain poured the peak of Mount Sinabung at around 13.00 WIB.
Debris were blocked by a bridge, causing widespread flooding of the nearby main road and in the village.
The responsible for the Emergency Response Team reported that 20 houses had been affected by the destructive lahar in total and 12 houses had been severely damaged. Emergency works to normalize de river’s flow and clean resident’s houses lasted at least 3 days.
