The international airport of Bali will be remained closed for a third day, as Mount Agung continues to erupt huge cold lava and ash, authorities said.

The ash from the rumbling volcano over the island was reported danger to the planes.

It was reported that the Mount Agung can produce thunderous eruption at any time.

Following this, airport officials warned and forced to shut the airport since Monday

Gede Suantika, a senior volcanologist at Indonesia’s volcanology agency said,”Small eruptions have been happening continuously but there’s still the possibility of a bigger, explosive eruption”.

Airport spokesman Arie Ahsanurrohim said in a statement, “Bali’s Ngurah Rai airport will remain closed until at least Thursday morning”.

It was learned that ashes are dangerous for the planes as it makes runways slippery and can be sucked into their engines.

On the other hand, Virgin Australia Airlines tweeted, “Due to the significant volcanic ash and current weather conditions, Denpasar Airport is currently closed. As a result, we have canceled all flights between Bali and Australia today and Thursday 30 November”.

However, reports say at least 22 villages near the volcano was majorly affected by the falling ash.
