Almost 50000 people flee rumbling Bali volcano

More accurately, the " 48.540", according to Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman of the agency of management of natural disasters.

There are still around 12,000 people waiting to be evacuated, and officials fear that there might not be enough shelters in place to house everyone. "Secondly, they are anxious about their livestock".

The island's main tourist areas and flights remain unaffected for now.

Dozens of anxious visitors, worried their vacation plans may be ruined, have taken to social media to ask for updates. Airline activities around Bali airspace are still normal with passengers' arrival departure process maintained and no record of rushed departure of tourists.

A 7.5-mile exclusion zone has been set up around the base of the mountain, and some of the evacuees have been sent to 300 temporary shelters, while attempts to relocate some 14,000 others are now underway, according to the National Disaster Management Agency.

"I am actually very anxious to leave, I left my cows and pigs at home because we were ordered to vacate our village immediately", villager Nyoman Asih told AFP.

When volcano experts say Bali's Mount Agung is "extremely likely" to erupt within hours or days, it is because of charts like the one above.

Indonesia's national volcanology centre released a statement saying it "has the potential to erupt... however, no one can predict exactly when there will be an eruption".

Mount Agung is among about 130 active volcanoes in Indonesia - an archipelago prone to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes as it sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire".

Bali's Governor has declared a province-wide natural disaster even before Mt Agung volcano erupts, as increasingly intense tremors suggest an eruption could happen at any moment.

.

Should Mount Agung eventually erupt, this information will become critical to continuing air operations in Bali and the Island's tourism industry.

Bali is much more densely populated than it was in 1963.

Religious leader Sumerti Jero, from nearby Karangasem, said he saw the mountain's rumblings as a sign it was angry with tourists flouting local customs. "We want to get out of here just to be safe", said an Australian woman at Bali's airport who identified herself as Miriam.
