Indonesia’s Volcanic Mountain, Mount Merapi Erupts

Indonesia’s most active volcano, Mount Merapi, has erupted again, spewing ash 6,000m into the air and blanketing a nearby village.

Ash mixed with sand rained down on towns as far as 10km (six miles) from the belching crater near Indonesia’s cultural capital Yogyakarta.

“There was a thundering noise for at least five minutes and I could see the ash clouds from my house,” said Jarmaji, a resident of Boyolali regency.

A nearby airport in the city of Solo has been forced to close, and residents have been told to stay at least 3km (1.8 miles) away.
