LDS respond after disasters in Indonesia

In addition to major flooding that has plagued Indonesia this fall, two major disasters struck the country Oct. 25 — the eruption of Mount Merapi and the tsunami that hit the Mentawai Islands. The volcano erupted again Nov. 3.

The Merapi Volcano eruption, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, left 42 people dead and displaced more than 20,000.
