2010: Mount Merapi in Central Java, Indonesia, erupts in the first of what would become more than a month of eruptions. Despite more than 350,000 people being evacuated from the affected area, 353 people would be killed during the eruptions, many as a result of pyroclastic flows, fast-moving currents of superheated gas and rock.
