Talang volcano in Indonesia erupted on 12 April, 2005, producing ash clouds of about 1 km height (3,000 ft). Talang volcano is located in Sumatra, just 40 km east of the coastal capital of the West Sumatra province, Padang. It is close to the areas affected by recent large earthquakes, but it is dangerous to say that there is a direct link between those events, since this is not known. Although some relation cannot be excluded, volcanoes and earthquakes have very different dynaics.
