Natural Disasters Plague Indonesia

One of Indonesia's most dangerous volcanoes has killed more than a dozen people.  Mount Merapi began erupting yesterday forcing thousand to flee nearby villages.  Authorities are trying to evacuate more than 11,000 people living on the slopes of the volcano. 

The country also experienced another natural disaster in which roughly 500 people are missing.  A 10-foot tsunami rolled through 800 miles west of the volcano, killing more than 200 people.
