  • Massive volcanic threat in Indonesia

    Tuesday 28th of November

    Bali: Indonesian officials have shut the international airport in Bali for a second day, as Mount Agung spews volcanic ash into the atmosphere.
    Massive plumes of dark ash were seen reaching as high as 3km (2 miles) from the summit of the rumbling volcano, which began erupting last week.
    Officials raised the alert to the highest level on Monday, fearing an imminent major eruption.
    More than 100,000 people have been ordered to evacuate the vicinity.
    Volcanic ash can damage aeroplane engines or even cause them to fail, and also clogs fuel and cooling systems.
    Pilot visibility can also be hampered.
