    Indonesia Bali Volcano set to erupt 10,000 flee.

    Earlier this week there was a 5.7mag undersea earthquake off the coast of Bali., i noted this in the Los Angeles Earthquake

    Evacutions are now underway.

    It was the third time in little more than a week that the alert level has been raised.

    This time it is rated as a Category 4 - meaning a hazardous eruption is imminent.

    It’s the first time in 54 years such an alarm has been raised.

    The Volcano Observatory Notice for Aviation reports the volcano’s seismic activity had dramatically increased. “This number of seismicity is an unprecedented seismic observation at Agung volcano ever recorded by our seismic networks,” it said in a statement.

    Earlier, the Department of Meteorology, Climate and Geophysics said there has been a “tremendous increase” in seismic activity at the mountain, indicating a greater probability of an eruption.

    ANIMALS FLEE
    Indonesian media is reporting claims of wild animals — including snakes and apes — being panicked by the stirring volcano and moving through settled areas.

    It’s been a growing trend over the past three days, the Tribun Kaltim news service says.

    “It may be hot on Mount Agung. So the animals (come) out and to the settlement, “it reports district identity Jro Mangku as saying.

    Men from a traditional village in the volcano’s shadow believe the descent of animals from the top of the mountain to be one of “seven signs” an eruption will occur. Small numbers begin to move up to three months before an eruption.

    “Maybe this is a sign — the sign of the mountain will erupt. This condition is not as usual,” Jro Mangku reportedly said.

    Such an animal exodus was observed before Mount Agung’s previous eruption in 1963.

    Other signs locals have come to expect before an eruption are yet to emerge. For example, there is as yet no fine ash that causes skin to itch.

    75,000 have been moved to safety, can't be long now. A few more rumbles.

    What gets me is people mostly Aussies worried about their planned or delayed holidays;(
