Vehicles laden with food, masks and bedding have been dispatched to help more than 75,000 people who have fled a volcano on the tourist island of Bali, as rising magma and increased tremors fuel fears of an imminent eruption.
Mount Agung, about 75 kilometres (47 miles) from the Indonesian tourist hub of Kuta, has been rumbling since August, threatening to erupt for the first time since 1963.
"The chance that an eruption will happen is quite big. But it cannot be predicted when it will happen," Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for the disaster mitigation agency, said.
The increased frequency of tremors shows the magma continuing to move towards the surface, with the mountain entering a "critical phase", the spokesman said.
The Indonesian Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation said there has been an increase in volcanic tremors, with a total of 564 recorded Monday.
The first chart below shows the energy created by these tremors, while the second shows the frequency of tremors, increasing dramatically since the start of September.

End Times ping...
Because volcanoes have never erupted before.
If you don’t mind, I’d like to be on your ping list.
I’m still waiting for you to respond to my last post to you.
Since you can’t (because you know you it’s a losing proposition) and won’t use scripture to back up your weak & pathetic argument, I suppose you’ll just troll me right?
May I be added to your ping list?

I wonder how long it will take Al Gore and the rest of the Glo-bull Warming Sheep to blame this on man’s use of fossil fuels?
There are several eruptions going on right now.
Ring of fire is active. Vinauatu (sp?) is also erupting.
I appreciate the link - might have to use it in the future.
Mmmmmmmm mmmmm... a Stromboli eruption!
Yes, 6,000 people have evacuated.
Minimal effect even at its historical worst.
The one in CA and in Naples Italy are far greater concerns-as far as global implications are concerned.
Then there is Yellowstone, although the one in CA is actually sending magma above the valley floor in the mountains around there. That makes it a possibility that an eruption could occur out sideways from the mountains.
thanks for the info.
Odd thing......just last night I was tired of politics and watched “Pompeii”.
And don’t forget Cumbre Viega in the Canary Islands.
It’s about as bad as the Yellowstone caldera.
I mis-typed. Cumbre Vieja
