VIVAnews - Indonesia's most active volcano, Mount Merapi, has spewed thick white smoke sulvatara these past few days.

The Agency of Volcanology Technology Research and Development said in a statement that Yogyakarta should remain calm upon dealing with the incident.

"Smoke and ashes are observable from the monitoring post. However, the volcano will not erupt its hot clouds in no time," said Sri Sumartini, chief of the agency, today, Feb 4.

"People must stay calm," said Sri.

Last year, Mount Merapi erupted and killed around 200 people. Most of the victims were dead due to pyroclastic flows.
