Should Mount Gunung Agung erupt, the ash cloud could disrupt flight schedules to and from Bali, in a severe case; the airport might be closed for a while.
Gunung Agung an active volcano has become very active over the last few days. Many volcanic and tectonic tremors have been registered by experts and a possible eruption could be imminent. This volcano has erupted the last time 50 years ago and has caused the death of 1000 people. The Balinese are much more prepared this time around and have taken precautions. The evacuees are now hoping that this dangerous situation will downgrade without any eruption and they can go back to their homes and continue with their daily lives as usual.
Update September 26, 2017So far 57,428 evacuees have joined 357 locations. The future is still unpredictable. 4 airports outside of Bali are ready to receive flights diverted from Bali should Gunung Agung erupt!
If for business reasons you end up in Balikpapan Kalimantan Indonesia, come to this restaurant to show or remind you what your hotel in Bali is like.
