Bali's Mount Agung Erupts For Second Time This Week

Nov. 26 2017 shows a volcano at Mount Agung on Indonesia's resort island of Bali spewing plumes of smoke and ashes

Meanwhile, Garuda Indonesia flights with destinations from and to Bali to date continue to operate normally and smoothly, since to date flight routes from and to Bali are not affected by the volcanic ash spread from Mount Agung.

However, Mount Agung's current eruption is still not considered unsafe.

A Level 3 alert has been issued by the National Agency for Disaster Management, with officials recommending no public activities taking place within 6=7.5 kilometers - 3.5 to 4.5 miles.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", an area of tectonic plates that frequently collide, causing seismic and volcanic activity. It is still gushing and the dark grey clouds are moving toward the neighbouring island of Lombok, a direction that is away from Bali's airport, where almost all scheduled domestic and global flights were continuing Sunday.

"As a result we have cancelled flights to and from Bali this evening".

Staff at Indonesia's volcano monitoring centre said it was not just pulverised rock being blown out of Mt Agung, but magma has now reached the volcano's surface.

Away from the airport, closer to the volcano, there are no new evacuations and so far no plans to extend an evacuation zone that reaches up to 7.5 kilometres from the crater.

Qantas, Virgin and Dutch airline KLM soon followed Jetstar's lead in cancelling flights.

Most recently, the 3,142-metre volcano spewed grey smoke and ash as high as 700 metres Tuesday, and again Saturday to twice that height, before beginning to emit lava Sunday. Around 25,000 people have been evacuated from the "danger zone" on the slopes of Agung to hundreds of refuge shelters.

The mountain's last major eruption occurred in 1963, killing more than 1,000 people.

Indonesia has more active volcanoes than any other country, including some of the world's most famous, such as: Krakatau (Krakatoa), Tambora, and Merapi. The alert was lowered on October 29 after a decrease in activity.
