For the last week we've been hearing somewhat sensationalised stories in the media that have suggested Bali is about to blow. Whilst that isn't the case (i.e. the whole island isn't going to explode), the situation is worsening and it's important to be informed of the risks.
The area surrounding Agung is not a major tourist spot. There are two volcanoes in Bali—Mt. Batur and Mt. Agung. Both are active and found in the eastern side of Bali. Mt. Agung is the highest point. The people who are in imminent danger are the residents living within the 10 km (6 mile) radius of Agung. As of November 2017, the Indonesian government has called for 100,000 people to evacuate. Bali’s top tourist spots—Ubud, Canggu, Seminyak, and Kuta—are safe and far from Mt. Agung. Bali’s capital, Denpasar, is 49 km (30 miles) away from Agung. To reiterate: The danger zone is within 10 km around Mt. Agung’s summit.
Should you find yourself stuck in Bali during the big eruption, you are safe for as long as you are away from the danger zone. Ubud, Canggu, Seminyak, and Kuta are far and safe. People are encouraged to have a N95 Mask handy in case ash fall reaches your area.
