A few days earlier, the Indonesia Center for Geological and Volcanic Disaster Recovery has issued a warning about the danger of volcanoes operating on level 3 'alarm status' , warning people not to approach the site volcanic areas within a radius of 3 km. Currently about 5500 locals living near active volcanic areas are in refuge in evacuation centers.

Sinabung volcano has been dormant for four centuries, before the first eruption in August 2010. After a period of quiet sleep, Sinabung volcano began another series of eruptions in early November.

Sinabung volcano is one of nearly 130 volcanoes still active in Indonesia, the island nation on the Pacific "Ring of Fire".
