JAKARTA, April 13 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia has raised the alert status of a massive volcano on Java Island to the second-highest level, warning increased activity at its crater means it could erupt anytime, local media reports said Thursday.
Monitors have been watching Mount Merapi closely for several weeks, and late Wednesday raised its status to "Beware," one notch below the highest level that requires immediate evacuation of villagers living on its slopes, reported The Jakarta Post online news service.

DISCUSSION

The earthquake occurred in a five-hundred kilometer wide diffuse plate boundary that accommodates the westerly motion of the Philippine and Caroline plates with respect to the Australian plate.
The preliminary epicenter is situated near the northwest- striking Ransiki fault, one of several major faults that have been identified in northwestern New Guinea. The focal mechanism is consistent with the earthquake occurring as right- lateral slip on a northweststriking fault.
