A video is being shared on social media claiming that it shows an underwater volcanic eruption near Sumatra in Indonesia.
The post is shared with a caption: “Ever seen Volcano eruption underwater? Here it is somewhere near Sumatra Indonesia.”
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be not real.
On putting the screengrabs of the keyframes through Reverse Image Search, we found the original video in an article dated October 20, 2017.
The video is created by an Australian geologist and is a representation of an underwater volcanic eruption off the coast of New Zealand.
This simulation video only shows what could happen if an underwater volcano erupts close to an inhabited mainland.
In 2019, NewsMobile debunked the same video when it was shared as the Sinabung volcano eruption in Indonesia.
No! The volcano in the video is not Indonesia’s Sinabung volcano
The same video was also shared as a volcanic eruption in Tonga in January 2022.
Hence, from the above information, it is clear that the viral video is a simulation video and NOT real.
