The Rover Posted November 27, 2017 Share Posted November 27, 2017 Authorities issue red alert aviation warning as Mount Agung in Bali continues to erupt. Magma has reached surface of volcano amid fears of 'explosive eruption.' Denpasar International Airport was prepared for the worst - and has now closed. Authorities raised the volcano alert to the highest level on Monday and ordered people within 10km of the mountain to evacuate amid fears of a major eruption. Experts say the eruption has switched to a magmatic type eruption from a steam-driven one; predict ash cloud could reach more than 6000m. Mt Agung sits more than 3000 metres high over eastern Bali. It last erupted in 1963, killing more than 1,000 people and razing several villages. More than 50,000 Indonesians were evacuated in September when experts warned an eruption was imminent - Some 25,000 people have been unable to return to their homes http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5119527/Mount-Agung-Ash-cloud-forces-Denpasar-Airport-close.htm http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/wireStory/tens-thousands-stranded-bali-volcano-closes-airport-51401195 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
