Mentawai Tsunami and Merapi Eruption in 2 days in Indonesia

From sea to mountain. After a great earthquake (7.2 SR) and tsunami (4-6 meters high) washed Mentawai, West Sumatra, Indonesia in Monday, October 25th 2010 at 9.40 pm, yesterday Great Merapi Volcano in Central Java, Indonesia erupted.

16 people died in Merapi Eruption while thousand people from 3 district of Central Java, Klaten, Boyolali, and Magelang has been evacuated. One of the victims is Azza, 6 month old baby. In Mentawai, until this post is written, 122 people died and 502 people lost. They might be has been swept away by tsunami which was occured 2 hours after earthquake

Additional information :
- There were 47 aftershocks happened in Mentawai, one of them rocked 5.4 Scale Richer, before Tsunami happened
- Many people died and lost because Local Meteorology Department has made a mistake by announced that there wouldn't be a Tsunami (even though at that time,the sea level had decreased drastically by 10 meters height and earthquake happened). People believed in it, do activity like usual, and sleeping peacefully when Tsunami came
- Mbah Maridjan (Mr. Maridjan) who worked as Merapi keeper found dead in mosque near his home in praying position. At night when Merapi Volcano was erupting, some rescue team has tried to evacuate him, but he refused. He believed that he would be saved by Merapi's Spirit as long as he prayed. However, God has different plan...
-- Please pray for Indonesia --
