This image provided by NASA shows the ash plume from Mount Merapi taken by the MODIS Rapid Response System satellite Friday Nov. 12, 2010. The National Disaster Management Agency said Thursday Nov. 18, 2010 that the death toll climbed to 275 after more than a dozen victims succumbed to their injuries _ mostly severe burns. Mount Merapi began unleashing torrents of hot gas, rock and other debris late last month after years of dormancy. The most significant blast came Nov. 5, the deadliest day at the mountain in decades. less
