JAKARTA, Indonesia (CNN) -- Indonesian authorities have ordered the evacuation of thousands of residents near Mount Merapi, warning a deadly volcanic eruption could be imminent.
Merapi, one of Indonesia's most dangerous and active volcanoes, has been rumbling for about a month. Increased lava flow over the past day and a new lava dome forming at the peak triggered immediate concerns.
Ucip Bahagia, head of one of the local crisis centers, said about 22,500 people will need to be evacuated. They will be taken to temporary shelters
