Chairs are strewn across a church that was abandoned following the eruption of Mount Sinabung in the village of Kuta Gugung, North Sumatra, Indonesia, November 13, 2015. Crumbling buildings and personal belongings left behind now serve as eerie reminders of how life suddenly stopped when the volcano erupted and everyone was forced to evacuate their homes.
