The country’s Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Center did not raise Merapi’s alert status, which already was at the third-highest level since it began erupting last August.

Officials said the volcano Mount Merapi erupted two times – at 9:13am and 9:25am western Indonesia time.

BPPTKG Yogyakarta said the first eruption reached 6,000 meters in height and lasted 328 seconds with a 75 millimeter amplitude, while the second eruption lasted 100 seconds.

Head of the Yogyakarta Geological Disaster Technology Research and Development Center (BPPTKG), Hanik Humaida, said: ”The ash column was observed to be gray with a thick intensity leaning towards the west.

This eruption was recorded on a seismogram with a maximum amplitude of 75 mm and a duration of 5 minutes 28 seconds.

The current danger is hot clouds rolling down from the peak and other volcanic material from an explosive eruption.”

The public should stay outside a 3-kilometer radius of the peak to avoid any possible danger. The center also advised residents living near Merapi to be on alert for volcanic ash and possible lava flow, especially if rain falls around Merapi’s peak.

National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesperson Raditya Jati said that, as of Sunday morning, villages in eight districts surrounding Merapi had experienced ash rains, with the torrent of ash in Srumbung district being the most severe.

UN troops called peace keeping forces and we never heard of until riots and after , calling peace keeping forces? Stop all 5g towers, stop 2.4ghz and 5ghz modems you have at home use 4 port connection on back of your modem and connect to your devices? Limited wireless is ok when you want upgrade your phones and tablets?Then stop wireless in home ASAP? Weapon is in your home called 2.4ghz ans 5ghz some times the cable man put both of them on your modem. Stop both of them. Google it how you can stop wireless in home instead wire it down?
