1. Alert Status for Central Java’s Mount Merapi Raised

The Indonesian authorities have raised the alert status of Mount Merapi volcano, on the outskirts of Yogyakarta on Java island, to ‘watch’ (the second-highest level) from ‘caution’ (the third-highest level).

Volcano’s guardian Mas Kliwon Suraksohargo Asihono has reminded the villagers nearby to remain vigilant and follow the instructions from the government.

“The alert status for the emergency has quickly changed as there has been an increasing volcanic activity,” Mas Asih told on Saturday, November 7.

“We have to be careful, stay safe, and be alert for the volcanic activity. People must remain vigilant when they make a move.”
