Indonesia is facing a volcanic eruption these days. As a result, tourism officials have decided to cancelled all tourism and mining on the slopes of Mount Merapi, the country's most active volcano. Mount Merapi is located on the island of Java. It is the most happening and important place of tourism.

Hot ash erupted from the volcano on Wednesday night and pyroclastic flows. It consisted of lava, rock and gas. This created a huge problem and danger as it covers a distance of up to 5 km from the slopes. 

Mount Merapi's lava is reported to have the greatest danger level and was raised back in November 2020. 

Hanik Humaida, Head of Yogyakarta’s Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Center said, "Dozens of light eruptions continued during the day Thursday with a river of lava and searing gas clouds flowing 2.5 kilometers down its slopes. No casualties were reported. About 253 people were evacuated to temporary shelters but they returned to the volcano’s fertile slopes after the activity subsided,"

Residents of Merapi have been evacuated and have been asked to stay 7 km away from the mouth of the original.
