Mount Marapi in West Sumatra blijft as explosies produceren tijdens de afgelopen week. Volgens de lokale nieuws, werden een paar zwakke explosies op woensdag, gevolgd door een uitbarsting op zondagochtend produceerde een as column over 1 km hoog, wat ongeveer 10 km naar het zuiden gereisd. De vulkaan is momenteel gesloten voor klimmers en een 3 km uitsluiting zone is op zijn plaats.

Bukittinggi de vulkanologie en geologische gevaren mitigatie Agentschap (PVMBG) officer Suparmo wordt aangehaald dat "de activiteit op zondag werd Marapi de sterkste in de afgelopen dagen, hoewel hij merkte op dat het alarmniveau niveau II is gebleven, zoals de activiteit van de vulkaan een neerwaartse trend vertoont".
The volcano's current activity began in August 2011, since when it has been erupting small ash plumes almost every day, but volcanologists are not sure if a larger eruption could happen. Additional seismometers have been installed on the mountain.
Mount Marapi is a 2,891 m (9,485 ft) tall stratovolcano, located near the towns of Bukittinggi, Padang Panjang and Batusangkar in West Sumatra. As its Malay name meaning "the fire-maker" suggests, it is one of Indonesia's most active volcanoes and has erupted many times since there are historic recordings. Its last significant eruption occurred in 2005.
Note that M_A_rapi is a different volcano than M_E_rapi, although their names have the same meaning and root. Merapi is located in Central Java, and also ranks as one of the country's most active fire-making mountains.
