Last night (10/1), Bali’s active volcano Mount Agung showed signs of eruption as detected by the seismograph on 7.55 PM. However, the height of the ash column couldn’t be seen since the mountain was covered by a heavy cloud.
Until now, Mount Agung is still in the Level III and the hazard zone is still within a radius of 4 kilometers from the crater. All activities like hiking and farming within the radius are not allowed.
The officials also warn people who live near the river stream of Mount Agung to beware of the cold lava flow as now Bali is in the rainy season, especially when there are still some remaining of the volcanic material near the crater.
