Merapi volcano (Central Java, Indonesia) activity update
Thursday Oct 03, 2013 18:41 PM | BY: T
"The area mentioned is the source of the small eruption that happened a few months back, according to a local volcano-guide." This (explosive) activity had left a small crater, maybe 20-30m deep, surrounded by blocks that had been ejected.
"Another area also emitted a glow, from the western part of the crater, as it did during my visit in May 2012".
