Bali Volcano Spews Ash 2,800 Meters into Sky

Mount Agung on the Indonesian resort island of Bali shot volcanic ash
2,800 meters into the sky on Thursday, but no "destructive eruption" was
expected, an official said.

"Magma is still rising to the surface so there will likely be more
eruptions," said Sutopo Nugroho, National Disaster Management Agency
spokesman. "But a major eruption is unlikely," he said, adding that Bali
was safe to visit.

Authorities have imposed a danger zone within a 4-kilometre radius
of the volcano's crater. The volcano's warning level has remained one
notch below the highest advisory since February, dpa reported.
