Volcanic ash from Mount Rinjani, Lombok. photo taken by Antara Foto.
Mt Rinjani, situated on Lombok has erupted with ash and debris being blasted about 1 kilometre into the air and blowing north-west from Lombok towards Bali.
Flights continue to be disrupted. Last night, the Indonesian transport ministry announced that it would close airports in Bali and Lombok until further notice, on advice from the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre.
Even though Indonesia had the most active volcanoes of any country in the world, Bali had been “terribly unlucky this year”, Dr Tupper, a volcanic ash expert, said. And vulcanologists have warned that they do not expect the eruption to finish any time soon.
