Centre for Volcanology and Geological hazard mitigation spokes person says He hope the volcanic activity will continue to decrease. Evacuees from the areas other than the 6 villages affected will be adviced of the mount Agung status changed and assisted by BPBD to return if they desire. Mr. Kasbani says, Mount Agung status downgrade is purely as a result of the decrease of volcano activity, and no other pressure. Therefore, anything outside the new 6 – 7.5 km exclusion zone including the holy Besakih temple is now safe.
