On December 1, Mount Semeru on Indonesia’s Java island erupted, prompting a call for around 500 people to temporarily evacuate their homes. The eruption came days after Mount Ili Lewotolok roared back to life. However, there were no reports of injuries or deaths. Indonesia is home to about 130 active volcanoes due to its position on the “Ring of Fire,” a belt of tectonic plate boundaries circling the Pacific Ocean where frequent seismic activity occurs.
