Mount Agung volcano becomes active again


A second eruption in less than a week of the Mount Agung volcano in Bali has intensified the watch for a more serious explosion.The volcano rumbled into life with a series of eruptions that temporarily disrupted some international flights to the popular Indonesian island tourist destination.

Mount Agung erupted last evening and three times early today, lighting its cone with an orange glow and sending ash 4,000 meters into the atmosphere.

The ash clouds have been moving toward the neighbouring island of Lombok, a direction that is away from Bali’s airport, where nearly all scheduled domestic and international flights were continuing on Sunday.
