印尼火山百年最大喷发又造成至少70多人死亡 (At Least 70 More Killed in Biggest Indonesia Volcano Eruption Since 1870s)
Indonesia's Mount Merapi has erupted with its biggest explosion in more than a century, killing at least 70 more people, incinerating homes and blanketing the region in white ash.
Authorities said Friday this latest in a series of eruptions over the last 11 days was the most ferocious yet.
Searing 750-degree (Celsius) gas flowed down the mountainside in a thunderous roar, and deadly plumes spewed ash four kilometers above the crater. The heat was so intense that clothes and blankets were fused to the injured as they fled for safety.
The death toll from the eruptions has now risen to about 120 and is expected to increase as rescuers pull bodies out of the ash and rubble.
Volcano experts said the Friday blast was the biggest since the 1870s. With the unpredictability of the volcano, authorities widened the danger zone around the mountain to 20 kilometers.
