    AMLAPURA – Volcanic activity of Gunung Agung in the past week continues to decline.
    The intensity of seismicity and magma movement tends to decrease, while deformation (bloat) shows a stationary pattern. But the status of Mount Agung is still Level III (Standby).

    This was conveyed by Head of Sub Division of East Indonesia’s Disaster Mitigation PVMBG, Devy Kamil Syahbana, while explaining summaries of Gunung Agung activity for one week, Saturday (18/11).

    Based on the monitoring results of PVMBG, seismicity in Gunung Agung since November 12, 2017 to November 19, 2017 has decreased.
    Some very shallow seismicities such as low frequencies and recorded gusts in the last one week period, but with an insignificant number.
    A spasmodic tremor earthquake is still recorded indicating the presence of magmatic fluid flow from depth, but the number is still not significant.
    For deformation (changes in the shape of a mountain / bloat), it tends to show a stationary pattern.

    PVMBG Called Out the White Smoke from Mount Agung It’s Good, Here’s the Explanation!

    AMLAPURA – The exit of gas and white smoke from Mount Agung is actually a good thing.

    Because the actual gas that accumulates too much in the stomach of Mount Agung, the energy that comes out can be very large.

    With the smoke coming out to 1,500 meters, it is actually good to reduce the pressure inside Mount Agung.

    We just wish it was often that come out like that.

    In order to accumulate the pressure below it decreases and decreases.

    So that later this magma, it is the gas that moves the magma.

    If for example this gas is released, it will not be at once or smaller. That’s good.

    Another Balinese priest has climbed to the top of the rumbling and smoking volcano in Bali that is threatening to erupt at any moment now.

    A group of Balinese priests shocked the internet last week when they hiked up Mount Agung on Sept. 29 to pray and check out the highly hazardous situation for themselves.

    Mount Agung, located in Bali’s Karangasem regency, has been at the highest alert, level IV status since Sept. 22, for fear that it will erupt again for the first time since 1963. After being on the highest level for so long, it seems people are starting to doubt how likely it really is that the volcano will erupt. But volcanologists insist that though seismic activity has been somewhat fluctuating since the volcano got upgraded to a level IV status, we are not out of the red yet
