Eruption of Merapi Volcano, Yogyakarta

This early morning at 2.00 GMT+7, our family wake up because ash rain of Merapi Volcano eruption. My house is about 20km north west of the volcano mountain.

A lot of people around Merapi in radius of 3-5 kilometers lost their home because of hot cloud from Merapi. More than 10 killed in the accident, including Mbah Maridjan, the legendary gate keeper of Merapi.

Merapi is nice mountain to visit when in silent condition. I hope everything is fine and everything will be back soon.

How is your home now?
Did you and your family also take a refuge / evacuate?
Or still staying at home?
