Thousands have been evacuated from the area around Mount Agung as it is thought to be hours away from eruption. We want to hear from those affected
Mount Agung in Bali could erupt in a “matter of hours”, according to Indonesia’s volcanology centre. Almost 60,000 people have been evacuated from the area after the region experienced hundreds of volcanic earthquakes in one day.
The last time Mount Agung erupted was in 1963, when more than 1,000 people were killed. The event led to an increased frequency of earthquakes. Authorities have urged people to stay out the danger zone, a designated 9km-12km radius of the volcano.
