Hundreds flee eruption of Indonesian volcano

USA TODAY - A volcano erupted three times late tonight and early Friday in central Indonesia, sending lava and smoke thousands of feet into the air and scattering residents, according to news reports. There are no immediate reports of casualties. Mount Lokon in northern Sulawesi first erupted at 10:46 p.m. (11:46 a.m. ET), forcing 500 mountainside residents to flee, a disaster agency official told the Associated Press. A second blast occurred just after midnight and a third at 1:10 a.m.
