Volcano Eruption in Indonesia on January 12 2018 01:27 PM (UTC).
Head of Information Data Center and Public Relation of National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said Mount Agung erupted again on Friday (1/19/2018), at 7:20 pm local time. The eruption that occurred was strombolian, characterized by the incandescent lava material which was thrown up from the crater to an altitude of 1,000-1,500 meters. This resulted in the presence of light in Mount Agung. "Volcanic ash column height was 2,500 meters with maximum amplitude of 24 mm and a long eruption of 120 seconds. Status Warning," said Sutopo, as quoted from the official Instagram account, sutopopurwo, Saturday (1/20). Sutopo further said that with Warning Status, Mount Agung can erupt anytime. So people are prohibited from doing activities within a radius of 6 km from the top of the crater. "No hot clouds. Flights to and from Bali are all normal," said Sutopo.
