Timelapse footage shows incredible eruption of the Sinabung volcano

THIS time lapse footage shows the breathtaking beauty of the eruption of Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra province, Indonesia. But despite that beauty, the volcano has caused widespread devastation to the surrounding villages, showering houses and vegetation with volcanic ash. More than 20,000 people have been forced to flee their homes since the eruption events started in September 2013.
