MENTAWAI ISLANDS, Indonesia (AP) - Officials say the Indonesian volcano that has killed 33 people this week is erupting again. No new injuries or damage are reported.
The latest rumblings of Mount Merapi come as rescuers cope with a rising death toll from a tsunami in another part of the sprawling archipelago nation.
Indonesian vulcanology agency says Merapi began erupting again at around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, spewing hot clouds of ash. Most of the residents have been evacuated from the area. It was unclear whether the new activity was a sign of another major blast to come.
