Mount Merapi spewed smoke early October 26.
The Mount Merapi volcano in Indonesia erupted Tuesday, forcing thousands of nearby residents to flee, the Antara national news agency reported.
Images on Indonesian TV showed the volcano lighting the sky with a fiery glow and sending thick clouds of gray smoke high into the air.
Mount Merapi, which looms on the horizon north of the major city of Yogyakarta, has a summit elevation of nearly 10,000 feet (3,000 meters). It is one of Indonesia's most active volcanoes and lies in one of the world's most densely populated areas.
