Mount Merapi erupts on November 5
Shortly after midnight, Mount Merapi erupted again. This eruption released 50 million cubic meters of volcanic material and was six times more powerful than the eruption on October 26. The explosion baffled experts, who believed that earlier eruptions would relieve the pressure inside Mount Merapi. Prior to today, the death toll stood at 44. After today, the death toll exceeded 120.
