Indonesia is devastated by one natural disaster after another. First an earthquake then a volcanic eruption then a flood.
At least 96 people were killed and hundreds injured in the magnitude 6.2 quake on Friday, with thousands fleeing the area in panic. The death toll is expected to rise as rescue work continues.
Several aftershocks were felt before and after that powerful earthquake.The quake affected at least 28,000 people in at least 25 shelters in Mamuzu and Majena districts on Sulawesi island. The quake affected 1,150 homes. Five school buildings have been completely destroyed.
The epicenter was reported below the Mount Semeru volcano in Indonesia at 5 pm on Saturday. No deaths have been reported since the volcano erupted. The mountain is also known as the Semeru the Great Mountain. It is the highest and most active volcano on the island of Java. The mountain is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia. Every year countless people from all over the world come to visit this mountain. Earlier, it erupted from Mount Semeru last December. About five hundred and fifty residents of the service were evacuated to safe havens.
The ash from the volcanic eruption has spread over an area of about five and a half kilometers in the sky over the island of Java. Volcanic smoke rises to a height of about 5.6 km in the sky. This has caused great panic among the local people. Even lava currents may come down.

Fifteen people have been killed in floods in the country’s southern Kalimantan province and 40,000 in shelters in the southern province of Kalimantan.
