Bali volcano: Indonesia Fears Imminent Mt Agung Eruption

Mount Agung fears of an eruptionMore

Arrivals at the Denpasar global airport remain stable at about 50,000 to 60,000 per day.

All outdoor activities, such as hiking and camping, have been suspended around the crater in East Bali and an exclusion zone has been set up 9-12 kilometres from the 3000-metre-high volcano, which last erupted in 1963.

The Indonesian national disaster agency (BNPB) said there had been more than 560 deep volcanic earthquakes recorded on Monday alone.

"Our preparedness will be the key for the mitigations of volcanic risks", Devy Kamil, a senior official at Indonesia's Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation, told AFP.

"We need to pay attention because these kinds of earthquakes indicate the movement of magma and increase the probability of an eruption". Detection techniques have improved so we know better how to expect the eruption, and infrastructure was also improved, meaning that more people could evacuate quickly and safely.

Around 62,000 people lived in the danger zone prior to the evacuations, according to the disaster mitigation agency. How large and when exactly the next eruption of Agung might be is impossible to predict, but the highest alert remains in place.

"If there is an eruption, volcanic ash clouds could cause flight disruptions".

"Now that the status of the Bali volcano is a known event, meaning it's been published widely in the media and on the Smart Traveller website, it's too late to take out travel insurance to cover delays for the volcano if you haven't already got it".

"The people around Gunung Agung must continue to be patient", he said.

(CNN) - Bali is on volcano watch amid rumblings from Mount Agung and warnings that it could erupt at any time.

One Spanish tourist, Jordi Portalo, 23, said he was unperturbed by the rumbling volcano.

"I think it could happen but.maybe we'd have to stay here a couple more days, so nothing to worry about", he said.

Trekking tours on the mountain have been cancelled by operators but officials have otherwise been at pains to assure tourists the island is safe. "Tourists are still going about their activities", she said.

Singapore Airlines and its short-haul arm SilkAir said customers travelling to Bali until October 2 could rebook or request a refund, while AirAsia said flights were operating normally.

Australians are being advised to check with their airline before flying and to follow all authorities and hotel staff instruction if travelling to Bali.
