Thanks all for the links and updates!!! Terrible what is happening to the people in Indonesia - who cares where the Obama clan ends up, they have bomb tunnels - these people do not! It looks as if this is getting worse by the minute, will return often for updates.

I don't know if that was sarcasm or patronizing. My eight year old and I have great respect for the power of the earth, especially volcanos and earthquakes. When he saw the picture of the plume, he suggested that I could share it. We were amazed at Sinabung, now we are shocked at the devastation that Merapi is bringing. I am by no means an expert in volcanos or earthquakes. I just wanted to share the image and contribute meaningfully to the thread.
Newberry Volcano, Oregon: If we needed any reminder about the importance of preparedness and volcano monitoring, Merapi is it. So, it shouldn't be surprising that USGS geologists closely watch volcanoes that many people forget can still be a threat, such as Oregon's Newberry Caldera. Dr. Julie Donnelly-Nolan told reporters that "we have no reason to believe it’s finished" - that is, the volcano is still viable, even after 1,300 years since its last eruption. Eight new seismometers are being installed around the caldera next summer to help with monitoring volcanoes in the Central Oregon Cascades. That being said, there is no imminent threat of an eruption, but as with any potentially active volcano, it is better to be overprepared than under.

Another Volcano just erupted on Nigeria.
Sadly one person is feared dead while properties worth millions is destroyed.
Volcano being active is one thing, Erupting is another and too many are erupting.

I have been watching this since it started as tiny traces. I did loads of screen grabs at the time. I will try and upload some tomorrow.
Could one of you experts please explain a little what this is please? I am a total begginer and I would love to know what I am seeing here.
Mohon maaf webicoder stasiun Pusunglondon sudah tidak berfungsi, dikarenakan stasiun terkena letusan.
We are sorry webicoder Pusunglondon station was not working, because the stations affected by the eruption.
