WATCH a live webcam of Mount Agung erupting on Bali as fears grow for the safety of thousands of people on the Indonesian island.

Bali’s highest volcano erupted on 26 November 2017 at 5.30pm local time and is sending a dark ash cloud into the sky.

For those who don’t know, most parts of Bali are still safe, just avoid East Bali area only (radius 12 km from Mount). Disaster mitigation officials and a network of sirens are on standby near the Mountain’s foothills to immediately advise the public and provide assistance if there is any sudden change in the alert status of the volcano.

Bali’s Disaster Mitigation Agency has fully developed emergency plans in place to handle every contingency. So don’t worry, Bali stands ready to meet every challenge.
