Last night the Merapi volcano on Java erupted again, killing at least 2.  This brings the death toll to 38  since the first eruption of the volcano earlier this week.

Last week alone, with the tsunami hitting the shores of several Indonesian islands and with the eruption of Merapi, at least 450 people were killed. 300 people are still missing in the regions where the tsunami reached Indonesia. Rescue workers are having a hard time to look for survivors due to bad weather conditions and lack of adequate equipment.
