Authorities warned thousands of people on Lembata Island, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) to prepare to evacuate after a volcano started spewing rocks and lava.
The 748-metre  Batutara volcano , which began rumbling last week, released hot lava and rocks over the last two days and shot clouds of hot air as high as 2,000 metres.
