Indonesia hit by two natural disasters

From Morning Report, 7:19 am on 27 October 2010

Indonesia has been dealt a double blow. Mount Merapi, on the main island, Java, has begun erupting. The volcano has a deadly history. More than 1000 people were killed when it erupted back in 1930. It did so only hours after an earthquake and tsunami hit a group of islands in the west of the country.
