Mount Merapi in Central Java experienced on Friday what disaster mitigation officials called a phreatic eruption, a phenomenon caused by the heating and expansion of groundwater.
The Sleman Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) in Yogyakarta has instructed residents and visitors within a 5-kilometer radius of Merapi to evacuate the area.
The Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Center (PVMBG) assured that Merapi’s status remains "normal", and that the agency would continue to monitor the eruption, Sutopo said. The eruption also caused minor tremors felt by people in surrounding cities, including in Surakarta, Boyolali and Klaten. (evi)
