Mount Agung Danger Zone Shrinks

(11/3/2017) reports that newly defined danger zone encompasses 15 villages.

The Deputy in charge of preventing and preparedness for the Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), Wisnu Widjaja, said the 15 villages considered “unsafe” are within a 6-7.5 km radius of the volcano’s peak. Included among those communities at threat are the villages of Sebudi, Dukuh,  Bhuana, Datah, Nawakerti, Kubu, Tulamben, Pempatan, Duda Utara, and Pidpid.
Widjaja said that despite the lower alert status, Mount Agung situation remains dynamic. BNPB’s experience is that volcanoes that suddenly show lower rates of activity can just as quickly return to a high level of activity.  For this reason, he asks the public to respect the “danger zones” and undertake no activities in these areas at risk in a sudden eruption.
The BNPB is increasing its early warning capabilities and prepare escape routes for local residents to designate safe muster areas.
Widjaja said: “Mount Agung will erupt, but when, nobody knows. To prepare for this we must be ready so any evacuation can be done in a calm and orderly manner.”
The head of the mitigation team from the Center for Volcanology and Mitigation of Geological Disasters (PVMBG), Agus Budianto, said a lowering of the alert level does not mean the public can become complacent.  He said the potential for an eruption continues to exist. The experience with Indonesian volcanoes is that volcanoes that go into remission can suddenly awaken and erupt.
More detailed information from authorities on the exact limits of “danger zones” and villages at threat in the event of an eruption will be forthcoming after the Galungan Holiday.
