Im not particularly into prophecies and by no means am I a religious nut, but when reading about what we could expect I couldnt get a certain passage from the revelations out of my head...something about a 3rd of the sky being blacked out or the sun turning dark or something to that effect?
Merapi eruptions dispel myths
According to BPPTK, Merapi has so far spewed 140 million cubic meters of volcanic material, creating a new historical record. The last biggest eruption in 1872 was reported to have blasted out 100 million cubic meters of volcanic material.
“The intensity of eruptions this year has indeed exceeded that of 1872,” Subandrio confirmed.
New body prepared to manage disasters
Last month, a twin disaster — an earthquake and tsunami in the Mentawai Islands, West Sumatra, and the volcanic eruption of Mount Merapi in Yogyakarta — occurred hours apart in one of the most seismic active regions on the planet.
Govt urged to write off survivors’ debts
Quoting data from BI’s Yogyakarta office, Lincolin said there was an estimated 3,655 debtors so far in areas badly affected by the eruptions of the world’s most active volcano, with a combined outstanding credit of Rp 106.4 billion. “These are credits that have the potential to turn into bad debts,” he said.
Despite alert, Merapi survivors return home
Only 400 of Gedangan’s 3,929 residents remained in temporary shelters in Boyolali; the rest have returned home, Sugiono said.
