Over 100 people have died in several volcanic eruptions in Indonesia since late last month, with another large eruption on Mount Merapi last night. A pyroclastic flow of 1,400 degree gas was moving at 60 mph through one village.
Soldiers joined overnight rescue operations in Bronggang, 9 miles from the mouth of the crater, pulling corpses from smoldering homes and streets blanketed by ash 3 inches deep, then piling them into the backs of trucks.
Dozens of injured - clothes, blankets and even mattresses fused to their skin by the 1,400 degree Fahrenheit gas clouds - were carried away on stretchers.
