    AMLAPURA – Until Sunday (01/10/2017), Gunung Agung activity is still stated level IV watch out. It means Mount Agung is in critical condition.

    To the Bali Tribun, Head of Volcano Mitigation PVMBG Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, I Gede Suantika explained, until now the seismic is still fluctuating.

    “The earthquake already, the size of the deformation lab still shows the fattening. Then, soflatara smoke has not been seen. But lastly, its development does change from 13 September to the present day, “explained Suantika, Sunday (01/10/2017).

    If the mirror in the eruption of Mount Agung in 1963, Suantika said when the earthquake was felt during the last three days before it finally erupted. However, the current condition of Mount Agung, the quake has been felt almost 15 days. “That may be the difference,” said Suantika.

    In addition to the eruption in 1963, there was a magnitude 4.7 earthquake, to date the largest earthquake only magnitude 4.2 SR. Suantika explains, he predicts the pressure of magma to this day is still, but the strength of the rock on the surface is getting weaker. “That’s what we’re worried about,” said Suantika.
    He explained, if the current Mount Agung erupted then the earthquakes will be more dominant than when the 1963 eruption.

    “Indeed, the conditions are different than the 1963 eruption. If Mount Agung erupts later, the precursors will certainly be more here. The precursor marks the eruption of earthquakes seemed long enough. Strange enough too, “explained Suantika.

    “Maybe later if the initial eruption is the same. Although the same, Mount Agung did not erupt long ago. Once the opening eruption allows there to throw sandy rocks as far as 6 km radial. Predicted to be amazing, “.
