巴厘岛阿贡火山已经进入了大规模喷发的周期。


Indonesian and regional authorities heightened flight warnings around Bali's Mount Agung last Sunday as the volcano's eruptions sent a plume of volcanic ash and steam more than 6,000 meters into the skies above the popular holiday island.


印度尼西亚和地方政府在上周日提升了巴厘岛阿贡火山周围的航空警戒级别,该火山近日来开始持续向空中喷发火山灰,火山释放的蒸汽甚至窜到了这座著名度假岛屿上空6000多米。



Ash covered roads, cars and buildings near the volcano in the northeast of the island, while overnight a red glow of what appeared to be magma could be seen in photographs by Antara, the state news agency.


火山灰覆盖了巴厘岛西北部的部分地区,道路、车辆和建筑物都未能幸免。而根据印尼安塔拉国家通讯社拍摄的照片,夜间的火山甚至能看到疑似为岩浆的火光冒出。


“The activity of Mount Agung has entered the magmatic eruption phase, it is still spewing ash at the moment, but we need to monitor and be cautious over the possibility of a strong, explosive eruption,” said Gede Suantika, an official at the Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Agency.


“阿贡火山已经进入了大规模喷发的周期,目前正不断地向空中喷发火山灰,我们需要对其进行严密监测,预防可能出现的大规模火山喷发,”火山学和地质灾害预防机构官员盖德·苏安提卡说道。



Bali, famous for its surf, beaches and temples, attracted nearly 5 million visitors last year, but business has slumped in areas around the volcano since September when Agung's volcanic tremors began to increase.


巴厘岛以其适合冲浪的环境、美丽的海滩和寺庙而闻名于世,去年吸引了全球大约500万名游客。但是自从今年9月以来,由于阿贡火山活动开始持续活跃,周边的旅游业开始出现了萎缩的迹象。


 

Agung rises majestically over eastern Bali at a height of just over 3,000 meters. When it last erupted in 1963 it killed more than 1,000 people and razed several villages.


阿贡火山矗立于巴厘岛东部,海拔高达3000多米。上一次该火山喷发是在1963年,曾经造成1000多人死亡,摧毁了附近数个村庄。

 

Australia's Bureau of Meteorology said in an advisory from its Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre in Darwin that the eruption was “expected to be ongoing.” Indonesia also upgraded its Volcano Observatory Notice for Aviation to red, its highest warning, and said the ash-cloud top could reach 6,142 meters or higher.


位于达尔文市的澳大利亚气象局表示,根据其附属的火山灾害处置中心的意见,这次火山爆发“可能会持续一段时间”。印尼也将火山观测站的航空预警升级到了最高等级红色,并且表示火山灰云顶或将升至6142米甚至更高。
