Devastating Eruption of Mount Agung Strikes Once More

Mount Agung erupted again on Tuesday (3/7/2018) morning. The largest mountain on the island of Bali has erupted twice. The Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) informs the first eruption around 4 am with a height of ash columns as high as about 2,000 meters above the peak.

While the second eruption occurred around half past ten in the morning with the same ash column about 2,000 m above the peak. Although the eruption continues for the last time, Gunung Agung is still at level III or alert status.

Therefore, people around Mount Agung, climbers, visitors, and tourists are absent and any activity is in the danger zone, ie, over a radius of 4 km from the summit of Mount Agung crater.

The hazard prediction zone is dynamic and continuously evaluated and subject to change over time. Residents living in and around the Sungai Sungai Agung must also use potentials such as lava flows that can occur especially during the wet season and if eruption materials are still open in the peak areas.

The incident caused two airports in East Java that Blimbingsari Airport at Banyuwangi Airport and Notohadinegoro had to be closed down. The closure was caused by volcanic ash from Mount Agung Yang spread to the area of Banyuwangi and Jember. Airport operations will reopen after conditions are safe for flights.
