When Mount Agung Volcano in Bali erupted back late May 2019, it spread volcanic ash across the island. This was the 3rd time that this volcano has erupted in May alone since becoming active again in 2017. Here are some incredible pictures of the eruption from last May.
Lava can be seen spurting out of the crater and running down the slope.
The eruption lasted four minutes and 30 seconds.
All flights were eventually cancelled.
Agung became active again in 2017 after more than a half century of slumber following a major eruption in 1963.
Indonesia’s Center of Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation (PVMBG) said in a report: ‘The ash column could not be observed. Thundering sounds from the eruption were heard adequately strong from the monitoring post.’
Check out the eruption in the video below.
Could you imagine looking out your house window and seeing this? Hopefully everyone remains safe.
At the time of this post, it erupted once again on June 13th, 2019.
