Mount Merapi, a dangerous volcano in the Asian country of Indonesia, is erupting, spewing out hot ash and throwing rocks into the air.

It's become more and more active over the past few days, which caused worries that it would eventually erupt.

Thousands of people living nearby have been evacuated from their homes and taken to temporary camps in a safe area.
