At least 25 people were killed in this disaster.

Government volcanologist Surono told AFP that they heard 3 explosions around 6 pm (1100 GMT) spewing volcanic material as high as 1.5 kilometres (one mile) and sending heat clouds down the slopes.

Thousands of people were in makeshift emergency shelters late Tuesday.

The volcano is on the highest alert level.

Mount Merapi is Indonesian most active volcano.

Scientists have warned that pressure building beneath Merapi’s lava dome could trigger its most powerful explosion in years.

If that really happens, it will cause a great disaster.

Indonesia is in the Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’.
