Bali volcano live webcam: Watch Mount Agung ERUPT as tourist hotspot issues 'RED WARNING'

"Ash coud moving to west-southwest". Last night, twenty flights were cancelled, most of m from Australia, and this Sunday low-priced airline AirAsia has cancelled anor 32 flights to and from Indonesian islands of Bali and Lombok. More eruptions followed and continued into Sunday, with a "medium-pressure eruption" in the early evening that sent ash 2,000 meters into the air, the agency said. Virgin and Dutch airline KLM are also reported to have cancelled flights.

The airport authority is preparing for the worst-case scenario - a total closure caused by a shifting ash cloud, Herson said. Ash from the volcano reached some 4,900 feet in the air.

Away from the airport, closer to the volcano, there are no new evacuations and so far no plans to extend an evacuation zone that reaches up to 7.5 kilometres from the crater.

According to the Volcanic Observatory Notice for Aviation (VONA) system, winds carried the ash in an eastern and southeastern direction.

Government volcanologist Gede Suantika said a red-yellow light visible in ash above the mountain was the reflection of lava in the crater.

Bali is main tourist destination of Indonesia with a monthly flow of some 200,000 foreign tourists, according to official data.

Under these circumstances, Garuda Indonesia enforces exemption policy for cancellation fee, rebooking/reroute fee, refund fee, administration fee and other ticket change fees for passengers who have scheduled flights to and from Lombok. "Three flights that were en route to Bali have returned to Australia". "So we are very disappointed about that". The alert level of the volcano remains at the second highest level, he added. About 25,000 people have been prevented from returning to their homes around the volcano since September when activity began for the first time since a 1963 eruption killed about 1,100 people.

On Oct 29, the centre lowered the volcano's alert level by one notch after it was raised to 4 on Sept 22 in response to the most intense volcanic activity recorded in 53 years.
