Indonesian Volcano Mount Sinabung Erupts In Sumatra

Nearly 135000 flee rumbling Bali volcano

Don't be fooled, experts say eruption at Bali volcano Mount Agung is 'more likely than not'

Mount Sinabung is one of the 34 active volcanoes on the island of Sumatra.

"Lately the earthquakes are increasingly being felt by people around Mount Agung and Batur". Volcanologists already raised the threat level to 4-the highest possible level-on September 22.

The island of Ambae in Vanuatu and an area of Bali in Indonesia have been evacuated in preparation for two active volcanoes that are expected to erupt at any moment. The last time it erupted in 1963, almost 2,000 people were killed.

The BNPB had said on September 21 that the current tremors were similar to those that occurred before Mount Agung erupted in 1963, which lasted nearly a year and killed over 1,100 people.

This level of explosivity has not been seen in Indonesia since the eruption of Mount Lokon in 2011. Mount Agung has been spewing white smoke and sending tremors through the region for a few weeks.

"Tourists having sex on the volcano have angered the gods", said a priest in the village of Muntig, which sits inside the volcano excavation zone.

Despite the danger, some people living on the slopes of the volcano have refused to leave their villages, saying they will only flee if the volcano erupts and believing they would have enough time to escape.
