Another quick update from @riohelmi on the Agung volcano status:
AS OF 20.30 (8.30PM ) THE DANGER LEVEL HAS BEEN RAISED TO LEVEL 4 - IMMINENT POSSIBILITY OF ERUPTION.
They recorded around 400 tremors on the 19th, and on the 20th the number of deep volcanic activities shot up to 563. On the 21st during a 24hr period they recorded 82 shallow volcanic tremors (VB) and 592 deep volcanic quakes (VA), as well as 51 tectonic quakes. Today, the 22nd they recorded in 6 hr period from midnight to 6:00 am 142 deep volcanic quakes and 36 shallow volcanic quakes.
Meanwhile evacuees are pouring into camps that have been set up in Klungkung and Karangasem areas. This morning there were 1300 plus in the camp in Les in northeast bali (Kubu, Karangasem) a jump from 230 yesterday evening. In the sports arena in Klungkung this morning I saw 639 evacuees, when we visited again this afternoon bringing supplies there were more than 700, and as we arrived back home in the late afternoon we received photographs of 5 full truckloads of new evacuees. They are expecting a total of 1500 new evacuees there tonight. Meanwhile a camp set up in Sibetan is set to receive thousands, and there are new camps in Manggis and other villages.
In Klungkung this afternoon Robin Lim, Eka of Bumi Sehat and I delivered some sundries to Klungkung and we saw scores of volunteers, and even high school students who came just to entertain young kids. The Bupati of Klungkung, Nyoman Suwirta, seemed very down to earth in a simple T-shirt and inspecting all aspects of the building, and getting down with the evacuees.
In the ‘no-go’ zone within a 7.5km radius of the crater there are 50,000 inhabitants. When I asked new arrivals who were being registered in the sports arena in Klungkung, they consistently spoke of relatives who still refused to leave. Many were concerned at the loss of livestock, many others were selling their cattle at a 50% loss rather than have nothing at all.
At the time of writing, at 8:45pm, September 22nd, no actual eruption has actually broken the surface yet. @kopernik.info Bali is the new drop off point for supplies like: clothing, toys, toothpaste, chili, Tempe, veg, oil, soap.
