Blitar, Indonesia, October 20, 2007An Indonesian youth plays in a tent at a temporary shelter near Mount Kelud, one of Indonesia's deadliest volcanoes.

Gun-toting police have ordered more than 110,000 villagers to evacuate the Kelud area after experts had predicted an eruption. (Watch a video of the volcano evacuation.)

As of Friday, October 26, Kelud had not erupted. But another Indonesian volcano, Mount Soputan, exploded, sending billows of smoke and ash into the air, on Thursday, October 25.

The Southeast Asian island country is home to about 130 active volcanoes.
