Indonesia’s Mount Merapi Erupts Again

Indonesia’s Mount Merapi erupted again Monday, spitting smoke, ash and hot gasses, AP reported. So far no injuries have been reported.

Merapi, the most active of Indonesia’s volcanoes, has erupted several times since Tuesday Oct. 26, killing 38 and forcing the evacuation of 40,000 residents to temporary shelters.

“There are more and more refugees coming down the mountain,” Rukman, the head of disaster response for the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI), told the Christian Science Monitor. “We need water and better sanitation; that is the big problem.”
