Sinabung issued eruption of black smoke is thick. Rumbling sound and vibration sounds and feels to a radius 8 kilometer.The bursts of ash reached an altitude 3000 meters, is greater than that previously only 2000 meters.

The eruption that emits thick smoke, could lead to a new lava dome at the top of the mountain. Formation of a new lava dome in the center of the crater now usually called as the 'dome cover', it is hoped will end the eruption. This phenomenon is common in volcanoes in Indonesia.
