The new eruption continues with intense strombolian activity and lava effusion from the Barujari intra-caldera cone. Associated ash emissions have been a bit less intense during the past days, although still reached up to 100-200 km length.
After having been closed for two days, Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport had resumed operations from Thursday at 12:30 local time and flight disruptions due to the ash plume have been limited to individual flight cancellations.
