The Mount Agung volcano on the Indonesian island known for its lush interior and beguiling beaches has been at its highest alert level for more than a week, sparking an exodus from an official danger zone and areas farther away.
Authorities say the no-go zone is the area at risk of lava, lahars and searing hot clouds of ash if there's a powerful eruption.
Disaster official Putu Widiada said Saturday: "Those who live outside the danger zone, we urge them to go back home and carry on with their daily lives."
