    I'm unsure if 'cold pyroclastic" flow is the right terminology, but the video shows a surge of mud-like liquid from Mount Sinabung recently engulfing a village in Sumatra.

    0.16 to get past intro.

    Well, that fulfilled my need to stare at footage of a natural disaster for the day. (It's probably a sickness, but I can't tear myself away from such things. I've watched just about every 2011 tsunami video posted to youtube.)

    I share your fascination/probable sickness. Something for tomorrow. Note the grader driver who in his desire to save his piece of machinery, places others in danger.

    A Laotian construction crew get swamped by dam collapse a few weeks ago.

    You gotta wonder the existence of common sense among common people. I for one would be running for the hills when seeing oncoming mudflow or tsunami, instead of whipping out my cellphone and taking videos.
