Volcanologists warn that an eruption may be followed by hot clouds of ash, dust, mudslides, and avalanches and suggest people evacuate

(INTELLIHUB) — A massive plume of smoke and ash continues to spew and lava can be seen flowing down the hillside of Bali’s Mount Agung volcano.

Everyone within a 6-mile radius of the volcano, including journalists, have been told to evacuate as strong tremors continue to rock the region.

Ngurah Rai International Airport remains closed and over 60,000 travelers are reported to be grounded.

There are over 22 villages with over 120,000 combined residents who live within the evacuation zone.

The last major eruption of the volcano was in 1963.
