The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Sat, October 21, 2017

A surveillance drone has detected on Thursday that the fracture in the crater of Bali's Mount Agung had widened since the last satellite imaging taken on Wednesday.

National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said the fracture was located on the eastern side of the volcano.

“The sulfuric gases emanating from the fracture are also denser than before,” he said in a statement on Friday.

Sutopo added that the drone's photos also revealed a small fracture in the southeastern part of the crater.

The Bufallo FX79 drone was operated by a joint team of three personnel from the BNPB and Gadjah Mada University.

According to monitoring results of the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation, Mt. Agung's volcanic activities continued on Thursday with 58 shallow volcanic tremors, 104 deep volcanic tremors and 17 local tectonic tremors.
