Indonesia raises alert to highest level for Bali’s volcano



Indonesia authorities Monday have raised their volcano alert to level 4, the highest in the warning system, as the country’s Mount Agung erupted for the second time in a week.

The authorities have ordered people within 10 kilometers to leave.

The ash column from Mount Agung rose 1,500 meters following an eruption that began at about 5:30 p.m. local time Saturday and has continued for several hours, said Indonesia's National Disaster Mitigation Agency.
