Mount Merapi, one of Indonesia’s most active volcanoes, erupted Thursday, spewing a column of ash 2,000 meters into the air, 

 

Mount Merapi has been erupting for centuries with the last major one on May 11, 2019 forcing large scale evacuations. The deadly 2010 eruption claimed the lives of 340 people, almost half of the roughly 800 volcano-related fatalities in Indonesia in the past decade, while some 60,000 people were displaced.
