Indonesian volcano spews ash in eruption

Yogyakarta: Indonesia’s most volatile volcano is spewing ash and hot gas in a massive column as high as six kilometres into the sky.

Mount Merapi’s clouds of ash, accompanied by a rumbling sound heard kilometres away, blanketed several villages on the main island of Java.

Indonesia’s Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Centre did not raise Merapi’s alert status, which already was at the third-highest level since it began erupting last August.

Villagers living on Merapi’s fertile slopes are being advised to stay three kilometres from the crater’s mouth and should be aware of the peril of lava, the agency said.
