To see the latest status of Bali’s rumbling Mount Agung, check out a livestream set up of the volcano.
It doesn’t get any more up to date than real time.
A CCTV camera, centered on Agung, from the Rendang area was posted in by the Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Center (PVMBG), with help from Indonesian telecommunication company, Telkomsel. The livestream kicked off on YouTube on Oct. 1, 2017.
A second camera was installed in Bukit Asah, Karangasem, as well, with a livestream launching on Oct. 5, 2017 (top of page).
Mount Agung, located in Bali’s Karangasem Regency, is about 75 kilometers from the tourist hub of Kuta. The volcano remains on the highest alert level—level IV—for an eruption since being upgraded on Sept. 22.
An exclusion zone of nine to 12 kilometers has been set from the crater, with evacuees fleeing homes inside the danger zone totaling around an estimated 185,865. Hundreds of volcanic earthquakes have been recorded daily at Agung signaling a forthcoming eruption and volcanologists have said an eruption is “more likely” than no eruption.
