(Newser) – The Indonesian volcano that erupted for the first time in 400 years yesterday blew again today, forcing 30,000 people to evacuate. Clouds of hot ash shot more than a mile into the air, the AP reports, causing some domestic airplanes to be diverted and local residents to don masks and head to emergency shelters. Two people died, one from respiratory problems and one from a heart attack, but it's not yet known if the volcano is to blame. For more pictures, click here.
