Bali – Mount Agung VOLCANO ALERT level 3 _aerobics and jiggling chandeliers
Most mornings I crawl out of my bed at around 5.30am and walk our dogs with Made.
Some mornings I give it a miss, I justify this to myself believing that last night’s vigorous aerobic work out was enough exercise.
I was sipping my coffee, flicking through the international news on my television when the shaking started.
The quake shook my tiny house, the chandelier jiggled, the windows rattled. I was thinking,
“Wow this quake is big, maybe I should go outside?”
By the time I crawled out of bed and walked onto my balcony it had stopped.
I looked at my family who were attending to their normal activities making offerings.
They looked at me and said,
“Linuh … (pronounced linoo) the Balinese word for Earthquake”.
By the time Made returned I had scanned social media to ascertain what had just happened.

I’m not about to go into technical language as I am not an expert.
In an article written by Tempo.com, according to PVMBG Devy Kamil Syahbanam who is the Head of Mega Monitoring Division of Eastern Volcano, Devy advices that, “ Gunung Agung has not been completed yet, there is still a lot of energy".
