INDONESIA DISASTERS OCTOBER 2010 ********* *********

Slide 2: 

DISASTERS IN INDONESIA BOSTON GLOBE – OCTOBER 27, 2010 Indonesia was rocked by two separate disasters earlier this week - a 7.7-magnitude Earthquake triggered a tsunami on Monday October 25, 2010 that swept onto the Mentawai Island chain in western Indonesia, and less than 24 hours later and a few hundred miles away, Mount Merapi erupted multiple times, unleashing searing pyroclastic flows that destroyed villages and blanketed the countryside in ash. Rescue personnel are only now reaching some of the more remote areas, but as of this writing, it is estimated that nearly 300 people were killed by the tsunami, and at least 30 died near Mount Merapi. Collected here are early photos from both disasters, and the rescue and recovery efforts just underway.
