Scientist believes Mount Kelud is on the verge of a major eruption and has placed the volcano in the highest alert level. The alert requires all residents within 10 kilometers of the peak to evacuate the area.
Mount Kelud last erupted in 1990, killing 5,160 people. It is one of the most active volcanoes in the archipelagic nation.
