Mount Ibu erupted Tuesday morning and blew ash clouds more than three miles into the sky, according to the Indonesian Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation. The volcano has erupted multiple times since early May.

Several other Indonesian volcanoes have erupted in recent months, including the Marapi Volcano and Mount Ruang.

How have officials responded to the eruptions? The volcanology agency on May 16 raised the eruption alert level for Mount Ibu to the highest possible level and urged residents to stay at least 4.4 miles away from the volcano. The alert has remained in place. Officials evacuated seven nearby villages on May 19.
