On Monday 27 November 2017, Indonesia’s National Board for Disaster Management raised its alert for the volcano, Mount Agung, to the highest-level possible, and said in a statement that a “potential for a larger eruption is imminent” had forced the evacuation of 140,000 people living nearby. An evacuation area was extended to six miles around the volcano.
According to local authority, the victims urgently need mask supply since the ashes rain has reached the districts around Mount Agung. In response to this, IGCN has sent 20,000 Masks to help the refugees to avoid the ashes that has been developing since last week. The donation was delivered to the disaster post in Tanah Ampo area.
Until Nov 30th 2017, the authorities has increased the alert level to four is because the magma is getting higher and higher.
