Up to 4,300 residents have been evacuated from five villages in North Sumatra due to the eruptions of Mount Sinabung, according to Getty Images. The volcano has been spewing ash and lava 2.5 miles into the sky. The Jakarta Globe reported that tens of thousands of hectares of farmland had been affected, with losses to farmers expected to amount to millions of dollars.

It does seem the ring of fire is cranking up - especially on that side of the Pacific.

Hmm, now doesn't there need to be some sort of adjustment on the W. side of the Pacific? I'd better keep my survival pak ready.
