Mount Agung

Mount Agung

Mount Agung volcanic activity is still high so PVMBG (Pusat Vulkanologi dan Mitigasi Bencana Geologi) still sets the status of Beware (level 4). Visually, over the last few days there is no eruption accompanied by bursts of ash and pyroclastic material with great pressure since 30/11/2017, but the seismicity is still high.


Eruptions occur only temporarily, not continuously and there is no impact on the flight activity of the eruption. I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport and Lombok International Airport are still operating normally.


Observation Post Mount Agung reported the seismicity of Mount Agung recorded 10 times blast, low frequency earthquake 7 times and volcanic earthquake in 2 times. The number of refugees of Mount Agung is currently as many as 66,716 people spread in 225 points of refuge. In general the handling of refugees takes place well and the logistics stock is sufficient.


Many misleading issues that say Mount Agung will erupt greatly. If there is a dangerous increase in activity, the government will provide early warning and take steps to deal with it.


Overall Bali remains safe, including tourist attractions such as Tanah Lot, Sanur, Pandawa Beach, Mount Batur, Ubud, Kuta Beach, Padang-Padang Beach, Lovina, Dream Land, Nusa Dua and others. The dangerous area is only within an 8 kilometer radius.
