GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!
ONE month after authorities warned the eruption of Mount Agung was “imminent”, locals and tourists in Bali can finally relax.
INDONESIAN authorities lowered the alert status of Bali’s Mount Agung volcano from the highest level on Sunday 29th October 2017, following a significant decrease in activity in recent days.
The Indonesian government volcanologist, said the decision to downgrade Agung’s status was made after several scientific indicators showed its activities were decreasing drastically.
Tremors from the 3,031-metre volcano, which indicate rising magma, have reduced in number from about 1000 a day to fewer than 400.
The radius of the volcano’s danger zone declined from 12 kilometers to 7.5 kilometers from Agung’s crater.
The government volcano agency said the downgrade means villagers who evacuated but do not live in the new danger zone could return home, but should not venture close to the crater, which was still emitting smoke.
