Volcano erupts in Indonesia, forcing thousands to flee
“The Mount Merapi volcano in Indonesia erupted Tuesday, forcing thousands of nearby residents to flee, the Antara national news agency reported.
Mount Merapi, which looms on the horizon north of the major city of Yogyakarta, is one of Indonesia’s most active volcanoes and lies in one of the world’s most densely populated areas.
Some non-governmental relief agencies were poised to offer immediate help. One of them was World Vision Indonesia, a Christian relief and development agency.”
