The State News Agency Antara reports that the Klungkung Regency Agency for Disaster Mitigation (BPBD-Klungkung) has commenced returning evacuees housed in temporary camps back to their home following the reduction in the alert level for the Mount Agung volcano and the resulting redrawing of lines around the “danger zone” considered not safe for human habitation.

“We are not forcing the evacuees to return to their homes. If there are those that wish to stay in the temporary camps, they are welcome to do so,’ said the operating chief of BPBD-Klungkung on Monday, October 30, 2017.
The repatriation of evacuees to their home villages now deemed outside the “danger zone” is being done in stages in a process that started on October 30, 2017.
BPBD estimates 3,758 evacuees from Mount Agung are living in villages still listed in the danger zone. The six affected villages are Buwana Giri, Sebudi, Besakih, Jungutan, Dukuh, and Ban.
Officials assure that no one will be forced to leave the temporary camp, even those who have had their home now reclassified as outside the “danger zone” for Mount Agung.
One evacuee, Nyoman Wenten (50), said he was returning to his home in the village of Muncan at Selat in order to celebrate the Galungan holiday that marks the victory of goodness (dharma) over evil (adharma). Wenten said he was perplexed because he has no fund to pay for a proper Galungan gathering with his family. Adding: “I am actually confused because I have no money to purchase the preparations for the holiday. For Galungan we need to buy ritual paraphernalia and food items.”
Nyoman Parwata (45), another evacuee from the village of Muncan, said he plans to return to the temporary camp after Galungan celebrations are completed in his home village. Explaining, “I will return (to the camp) after Galungan is done. I still feel frightened to stay in my home with a ‘siaga’ (ready) status in place.”
