Mt. Merapi has been erupting for 6 days!

Indonesia’s Mt. Merapi volcano released heat clouds and spilled lava, on Thursday. This is the 6th day of the volcano’s continuing eruption.

In its most active day of eruptions, Merapi sent 80 lava flows down its Western slopes. The recent Indonesian earthquake is attributed to the volcano’s increased activity. Indonesian Vulcanologist Tri Yani said: "It is the first time that lava was seen flowing to the west.”
