Merapi Volcano erupts lava again !

Indonesia volcano Merapi erupts lava again. Scientists say that the volcano can be active for weeks. Since 1548. Merapi has been active 68 times. In 1992 Merapi erupted again what lasted for 10 years.
This year the volcano was first active at 26 October.Visibility in the city was limited to about 10 to 15 meters and people in the city wore masks or handkerchiefs over their faces. The medical officials say that the volcano killed at least 36 people and injured 25 when it exploded. The European Commission offered 1.5 million euros ($2.1 million) to help the victims of nature disasters.

And I will add a video address (I can't upload it) from CNN where you can hear and see more of the volcano:

Also Indonesia has gone through some rough times lately , like 7.5 magnitude earthquake what caused Tsunami.

We should all light a candle for those people who were killed and be thankful of that we live in a safe country !
