Bali volcano: Is it safe to travel to Bali? Update as Mount Agung eruption threat critical

JAKARTA - Indonesia's Mount Agung volcano on the island of Bali erupted for a second time in less than a week on Saturday evening, sending a grey-black plume of ash and steam at least 1,500m into the sky and leading several airlines to change flight plans. "Tourism in Bali is still safe, except in the danger (zone) around Mount Agung," Indonesia's Disaster Mitigation Agency said in a statement, referring to an area that extends to a radius of up to 7.5km from the summit. "There has not been an increase in seismic and volcanic activity after the (Tuesday) eruption and until this afternoon," said the statement, noting that it had not changed its emergency status for Agung from level three. The agency also called for calm among the local community, from which around 25,000 people have been evacuated from the slopes of Agung to hundreds of refugee shelters.
