Mt Agung has moved to red status: Erruption Imminent!
This could spell trouble for aircraft flying in the south Pacific and if it gets to major erruption status, it could disrupt air traffic throughout the southern hemisphere.

Mt Agung has moved to red status

Red status means that full paroxysmal eruption and that pyroclastic flow is anticipated.

Airlines have been issued a "red warning" about the danger of volcanic ash in the skies close to Bali after Mount Agung emitted a thick plume of smoke reaching 4,000m (13,100 feet).
It is the second major emission from the Indonesian island volcano this week, and flights have been disrupted.
The red warning means an eruption is forecast to be imminent , with significant emission of ash likely.
Authorities have begun distributing masks in some areas as ash falls.
Bali is a major tourist destination, although the main resorts of Kuta and Seminyak are about 70km (43 miles) from the volcano.
One should have an open mind; open enough that things get in, but not so open that everything falls out

The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous that he cannot believe it exists.
