A powerful, 7.7-magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami that pounded villages on remote islands off western Indonesia late Monday.

At least 113 people were killed and a lot of people were missing.

Witnesses said, 10-foot (three-meter) high wave washed away hundreds of houses on Pagai and Silabu, part of the remote and sparsely populated Mentawai island chain.

On Tuesday, Mount Merapi in central Java erupted.

20 people were hurt by hot ash.

Lots of people had been evacuated from the area.

The alert level for the volcano had been raised to the highest level.

Pressure building beneath a lava dome in the mouth of Indonesia's most volatile volcano could trigger one of its deadliest blasts in years, scientists warned Tuesday, as residents living along the slopes were moved to temporary camps.
