Bali's Mount Agung volcano erupts

Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport has been placed on high alert after Mount Agung, an active volcano on the tourist island, erupted over the past two days. The eruption could be audible from the Rendang volcano observation post in Karangasem.

Ashes were found in Bali's central and southern regencies, including Klungkung, Gianyar and in Denpasar city.

The volcano was seen spewing ash up to around 2,000 meters from its peak, prompting the local disaster mitigation agency to take immediate precautionary action.

The authorities have maintained the volcano's alert status at level three and declared a danger zone within a four-kilometer radius of the crater.

Sutopo said no report of casualty has so far been reached after the eruption.

"Representatives of related institutions would meet again to discuss possibilities (to open or close the airport) if significant situation changing occurs", he said.
