The eruption began in 2005 and is believed to have been started by gas drilling in the area.

Located in Indonesia the Lusi volcano initially killed 13 people and displaced 13,000 families as it spewed over 50 Olympic swimming pools worth of mud every single day, it is believed it will take 26 years for the flow to subside to a manageable level.

"In 2007 and 2008, a team of scientists led by Professor Davies produced evidence that drilling caused the mud volcano."

Its still amazing a few years down the track. Just a sea of mud. What a mess. No wonder the drilling company wants to blame nature itself for the problem.

It shows how ignorant mankind still is. We poke holes in the ground and think that only good things will come out of them. But when something like this happens, the blame game starts. Hopfully no one else will be harmed by it in the future.
