Bali volcano eruptions temporarily disrupted some international flights

Vastavam web: A volcano on the Indonesian island of Bali has rumbled into life with a series of eruptions that temporarily disrupted some international flights to the popular tourist destination.Australian airline Jetstar, which cancelled nine flights to and from Bali yesterday, said most of its Bali flights will operate normally today after its senior pilots assessed it was safe to fly.
The ash clouds have been moving away from Bali’s airport, where nearly all scheduled domestic and international flights were continuing today.
Disaster officials said ash up to half a centimetre (less than an inch) thick has settled on villages around the volcano and soldiers and police were distributing masks.Agung also had a minor eruption on Tuesday but authorities have not raised its alert status from the second highest level, which would widen the exclusion area and prompt a large evacuation of people.About 25,000 people have been unable to return to their homes since September, when Agung showed signs of activity for the first time in more than half a century.
