More than 120000 flee Bali volcano - Indonesian official

Bali volcano Australi and Indonesia

The exodus from the menacing volcano on the Indonesian tourist island is nearing 100,000 people, a disaster official said Wednesday, as hundreds of tremors from the mountain are recorded daily.

The mount Agung, at a little more than 3,000 meters of altitude and located about 75 kilometers of the main tourist destinations of Kuta and Seminyak, growls since the month of August and could erupt for the first time in more than a half-century.

People fleeing this week were settled in 400 locations across Bali, including temporary camps, schools and other public buildings. "Sirens will sound and tell the community the mountain has erupted".

"I would definitely be following the advice to stay outside the exclusion zone". "So I chose to get out to save myself with my stuff and my pet", he said, carrying a cage housing a bird.

Bali is famous for its beaches and temples and saw almost 5 million visitors previous year, mainly from China, Australia, and Japan. Meanwhile, the authorities in Bali remain defiant.

"Bali tourism is safe".




The Indonesian National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) also warned residents and tourists to avoid areas within the 12-kilometer radius of the crater.

Officials have said that 122,490 people have left in fear and there are 500 makeshift shelters, the government said that they were prepared despite the rise in people evacuating the area.

Indonesia is the world's most active volcanic region with 127 active volcanoes.

Another volcano, Mount Sinabung, has been erupting sporadically since 2010, sometimes blasting volcanic ash several kilometres into the air and forcing more than 30,000 to evacuate their villages.

Elsewhere, the threat of a separate volcanic eruption on the Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu prompted authorities on Thursday to order the compulsory evacuation of the entire island of Ambae, home to 11,000 people.
