Gunung Agung in Karangasem Regency, Bali Province, this evening, Sunday (21/4), at 6:55 p.m had eruption. Mount Agung Observation Post observes the height of the ash column approximately 3,000 m above the peak or about 6,142 m above sea level. The ash column was observed to be gray with thick intensity leaning westward.

Now, the activity level of Mount Agung is still at Level III (Caution) with an Estimated Hazard Zone within a 4 kilometer radius of the crater.


The Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation (PVMBG) of the Geological Agency ask on people around Mount Agung and climbers / visitors / tourists to stay away, not climb, and not carry out any activities in the Estimated Hazard Zone.


"The Estimated Hazard Zone is dynamic and continues to be evaluated and can be changed at any time following the development of the most current / most recent G. Agung observation data," said PVMBG Head Kasbani.

The land area of ​​the rain lava follows the upstream rivers in Mount Agung.


Based on the report as the photo above, at 8:27 p.m. WITA Mount Agung looks quite clear, the eruption situation does not occur again. (sk)
