Still glowing hot

Lava glows at the crater of Mount Merapi on Nov. 2, 2010. The volcano still show signs of dangerous activity, leaving Indonesia in a high state of alert. Officials says it is difficult to know if or when the volcanic activity will subside.

The volcanic eruptions are linked with earthquakes and tsunamis that have struck Indonesia during the same week, making the disaster response especially difficult.
