“…all measuring instruments show there is growing pressure towards the surface,” spokesperson for the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) told the local media.

“The chance that an eruption will happen is quite high. But it cannot be predicted when it will happen.”

About 60,000 people have fled the restive volcano in Bali as rising magma and enhanced seismicity threaten an imminent eruption, officials said.

Some 2,000 cattle have also been evacuated from the villages surrounding the volcano.

Bali Volcano Threatens to Blow

Up to million people are urged to evacuate Mt Agung precinct on the island of Bali, eastern Indonesia, as the restive volcano threatens to explode imminently.

Authorities raised the warning to the maximum level “four” on Friday night, indicating  a dangerous eruption was imminent within hours.

Up to 2,000 tremors have been shaking the massive volcano since Wednesday, increasing the probability of an explosive eruption.

The volcano last erupted (VEI 5) in 1963-1964, sending about 1.8 cubic meter of volcanic material 10km into the air, and killing at least 1,100 people. Mt Agung [aka, Gunung Agung] is one of Indonesia’s 132 active volcanoes.

Mt Agung threatens to explode

The volcano is ejecting white smoke and ash to a height of more than 3km above the crater, which could affect air travel.

“Volcanic activity remains high and there are indications of magma rising to the surface and causing tremors,” the National Disaster Management Agency has said, warning nearby residents and tourists against entering the exclusion zone.

Mt Agung is one of Indonesia’s 132 active volcanoes. A major eruption in 1963 killed about 1,100 people.
