Mount Kelud's ash continues to cover parts of Indonesia

A day after Mount Kelud erupted in Indonesia, its plumes of ash and sand continue to cloud the skyline. The eruption sent ash 17 kilometers, or 10 miles, into the sky above the Java province. The dust is covering paddy fields, rivers, roads and more. Around 50,000 people remain temporary shelters provided by the local government. (SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Indonesia) VILLAGER, MUHAMMAD RAKIP, SAYING: "I think we have enough space here. From my perspective we still need more toilet facilities. As you know we are a lot of people here." People in affected areas have begun cleaning up, but there's no telling when the ash will stop falling.
