JAKARTA, Oct. 25 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia on Monday raised alert status of a volcano located in a densely populated area of Central Java to top alert, and asked for a massive evacuation for more than ten thousands people living in the slope of the mountain, officials said. The most volatile Mount Merapi of 2,968 meters high has shown increased seismic activity over the past week, head of volcanology observer at the National Volcanology who goes with a single name Kristianto said. "We have raised the alert status to the higest-level this morning, this means that the mount can erupt at any time," Kristianto told Xinhua by phone.
