Evacuations from Bali volcano swell to more than 57000

Residents living in the shadow of the simmering Mount Agung volcano on the idyllic Indonesian holiday island of Bali are reportedly refusing to evacuate despite fears that it could erupt at any time.

Heather Handley, earth sciences professor at Sydney's Macquarie University, said the increase of tremors from Mount Agung suggests an eruption is imminent.

Spewing steam and sending tremors through the area, the volcano's alert status was raised to the highest level last week.

More than 800 earthquakes were recorded in the area Monday alone - with additional 400 by Tuesday midday - and a smoke column was seen emanating from the crater. Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, the Indonesian National Disaster Management Agency' head of information and data, told CNN: "Most of the [tourist] destinations in Bali are safe from the eruption or unsafe impact of the eruption".

People fleeing this week were settled in 400 locations across Bali, including temporary camps, schools and other public buildings.

Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport is the second-busiest in the country, after Jakarta's main international airport. "We want to get out of here just to be safe", said an Australian woman at Bali's airport who identified herself as Miriam.

People beyond the designated Bali evacuation zone are also retreating, including many tourists, according to CNN.

The animals are extremely valuable to the evacuees - mostly farmers - some of whom have refused to leave the danger zone, the spokesman said.

'Mount Agung had been erupting for three months when the government evacuated us.

Warnings that Bali's volcano will erupt have sparked an exodus of people and another challenge: what to do with thousands of cows left behind by villagers.

When Agung erupted in 1963, it hurled ash as high as 20 kilometres (12 miles) and remained active for about a year.
