Current Status of Mount Agung Volcano
This morning I asked my trusted assistant what was the latest news on the pending eruption of Mount Agung?
He said they expected it to erupt in the next 10 days!
I then asked him is this is based on official Govt. scientific predictions or local hearsay?
The answer was as usual that this prediction was from local rumours.
The fact is they may be right, or wrong, because even the Indonesian Govt. and esteemed scientists from around the world readily admit that no one can predict when a volcano will erupt with 100 % accuracy.
May Not Erupt at All:
Last week one of my managers who knows after 13 years of working with me that I often have an uncanny sixth sense with a high degree of accuracy asked me what I thought?
I said " I have a gut feeling it may not go off at all".
So as always plan for the worst and hope for the best but the bottom line is if you are more than 12 Km from the crater you probably have nothing to worry about so tourists and locals who are out of the danger area should not fret.
