Highest volcano in Bali likely to erupt soon

The observation post on Mount Agung recorded 547 surface volcanic earthquakes on Monday, a figure four times higher thant that of Friday, which corroborates the hypothesis that magma is rising, the agency said.

Evacuees are now living in temporary shelters: sports centres, village halls or even with relatives or friends.

"The disaster mitigation agency said 48,540 people had fled and the number was expected to rise because more than 60,000 people lived in the danger zone", Agence France-Presse reports.

Indonesian officials have drawn up plans to divert flights to 10 airports across the country and extend tourist visas for stranded travellers should Bali's Mount Agung - which has been rumbling perilously for days - erupt.

"This morning we were anxious because we had limited rice supply, but now we have received more rice stocks from donors", Mr Subandi said. Detection techniques have improved so we know better how to expect the eruption, and infrastructure was also improved, meaning that more people could evacuate quickly and safely.

Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, it is home to more than 130 active volcanos - more than any other country on earth. Lava travelled 7.5 kilometres and ash reached Jakarta, about 1,000 kilometres away.

Until when the community evacuating remains unknown as it depends on Mount Agung. Around mountain, 75 thousand people have been evacuated to safe areas until now, evacuation efforts are continuing rapidly and efforts to take all necessary precautions against possible explosion have been continued.

"No eruption. That is my prayer". In a televised news conference, he said "the highest priority is the safety of our people" and urged those around Mount Agung to follow the instructions of authorities.

The Dynasty resort said it would collect all donations and liaise with Solemen Indonesia, a charity that helps disadvantaged people in Indonesia, to distribute them to those that need them. "A large eruption and ash emissions could impact air travel in the region", the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Indonesia advised in a security message released September 21.

The mountain, 72 kilometers (45 miles) to the northeast of the tourist hotspot of Kuta, is among more than 120 active volcanoes in Indonesia.

Officials have said there's no immediate threat to tourists, but some are already cutting short their stays in Bali.

Life was going along largely as normal on the island famous for its beaches, temples and gentle Hindu culture.
