Authorities in Bali are constantly monitoring Mount Agung's activities to make sure the people living nearby are safe. Despite lesser smoke, visible at the top of Mount Agung in the past few days, they warn a major eruption is still possible as tremors and quakes continued.
According to official records, the volcano is relatively calm visually. Only thin layers of smoke could be seen coming out of the crater on Sunday, but the volcano's seismic activities remain volatile.

Authorities are recording very strong earthquakes and tremors and the energy of the magma that's rising to the surface is looking quite strong.
"The latest satellite image shows that the lava has already reached the surface so now it has filled the crater, about one-third of it. This indicates that the eruption activity is still an ongoing process, but indeed it is very slow," said Devi Kamil Syahbana, staff member of the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation.
