Indonesia is dealing with both a volcanic eruption and the aftermath of a powerful earthquake and tsunami.

The eruption of Mount Merapi came after scientists warned of pressure building beneath its dome.

A 2-month-old baby reportedly died as panicked villagers fled.

Hundreds of miles away, rescuers are battling rough seas to reach remote islands pouned by a 10-foot tsunami, killing at least 113 people.

Scores more are missing.

A 7.7-magnitude earthquake triggered the wave that washed hundreds of homes into the sea late yesterday.

Reports of damage and injuries were steadily climbing.
