Facing Fresh Bali Volcano Eruption Red Warning Issued to Airlines

The centre has not felt it necessary to raise the overall alert level, which remains at 3 on a scale of 1 to 4, nor to more strictly limit human activity around the volcano. However it warned that the movement of ash cloud is highly unpredictable and flights could still be cancelled at short notice.

"Following an eruption of the Mount Agung volcano in Bali, Indonesia, it is not now safe to operate flights around Denpasar Airport", the airline said in a statement.

VP Corporate of PT Garuda Indonesia Hengki Heriandono said Garuda Indonesia will continue to monitor the situation and developments related to the activities of Mount Agung, especially the activity of the spread of volcanic ash that can disrupt flight safety. The twelve departures affected include from Bali to Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne by Jetstar, to Brisbane by Virgin Airlines, and two to Sydney and one to Amsterdam by KLM.

The aviation alert status for Bali has been lifted from "orange" to "red" but the airport will remain open until volcanic dust impacts the airport.

"Mount Agung has erupted 18 times and we are used to such a condition", he said, while still urging people to prepare backpacks containing masks, flashlights, jackets and glasses.

Fonseca says the message has been on the rear window of the pickup for almost a year and it'll stay there for the time-being. Sheriff Troy Nehls said, "The Facebook post accomplished its objective and now we know who owns the truck".

The ash cloud is said to be moving eastward from Bali towards the island of Lombok, and the main global airport there has been closed entirely.

"Tourism in Bali is still safe, except in the danger (zone) around Mount Agung", the agency said in a statement.

Away from the airport, closer to the volcano, there are no new evacuations and so far no plans to extend an evacuation zone that reaches up to 7.5 kilometres from the crater.

Some 25,000 people have been prevented from returning to their homes since the volcano awoke in September.

The last time the volcano had a major eruption, in 1963, more than 1,000 people perished.
