Image 1 of 23


Mount Merapi spews volcanic material as seen from Wukirsari, Indonesia, on Nov. 8. The volcano, on the outskirts of Yogyakarta, began spewing lava, superheated gas, and deadly clouds of ash two weeks ago, and has killed more than 130 people and forced the evacuation of nearly 300,000. Dozens of flights to and from the capital Jakarta, about 375 miles from the volcano, were canceled after the volcano belched fresh clouds of volcanic ash 19,000 feet into the atmosphere.
