Caption: Volcanic destruction. Buildings at the edge of a pyroclastic flow from the Gunung Merapi (Mount Merapi) volcano. This is one of Indonesia's most active volcanoes, located on the island of Java, 28 kilometres north of the city of Yogyakarta. Its elevation in 2011 was 2930 metres. A series of eruptions in October and November 2010 produced pyroclastic flows and lahars (volcanic mud flows). Thought to be the largest eruptions here since the 1870s, over 350,000 people from villages and towns in the area were evacuated, and around 350 died. Photographed in March 2011, at Kepuharjo, Cangkringan, near Yogyakarta.
