Volcanic activity from Mount Merapi, located approximately 30 km (18 mi) north of Yogyakarta, forced the evacuation of hundreds of residents as of Thursday, November 12. Thus far, approximately 1300 people have been relocated from towns in the Magelang, Sleman, Boyolali, and Klaten regencies of Central Java. The Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) has yet to raise the volcano's alert status, which is currently at 'caution', the second-highest level in a four-tiered system. PVMBG continues to advise that residents do not approach within a 6 km (3.7 mi) radius of Merapi.

Further evacuations are possible over the coming days.


Those present in the affected area are advised to avoid the vicinity of the volcano, monitor the situation, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
