The VSI raised the Lewotolo's alert level from 1 / normal to 2 / alert, and established a danger zone of 2 km radius around the volcano.
This stratovolcano is located on an elongated peninsula connected to the island Lembata, in the sea of ​​Flores,
Since early August 2017, a seismic swarm has been recorded, in connection with degassing; at the end of September, the seismicity changed of register, and between 1 and 6 October, there were recorded non harmonic tremor, hybrid earthquakes, superficial and deep volcanic earthquakes and some local tectonic earthquakes.

At the Agung, there is still no eruption.

On October 9, the steam plume reached only 200 meters in height, against 1,500 meters on October 7 at 8:30 pm local time.
Seismicity consists on 9 October, from 0h to 6h local, of 117 deep VA volcanic earthquakes, 70 shallow volcanic earthquakes VB, and 9 local tectonic earthquakes,
Some hotels try to reassure the tourists present by posting a notice of "safe zone" ... see the poster below.
