This Could be Bad

A volcano in Indonesia is erupting:

Towering clouds of ash are being spewed out of Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra and thousands of villagers living on its slopes have been forced to head to emergency shelters, mosques and churches.

This one hasn't gone up since 1600, so right now, no one knows what to expect. If we got an event like the 1815 Tambora explosion, it could be a real problem. That one gave North America "the year without a summer".
