Ba­li­nese un­ease

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - WORLD -

The restive Agung vol­cano on the In­done­sian re­sort is­land of Bali con­tin­ued to rum­ble, and some of the 144,000 peo­ple who ini­tially fled due to ter­ri­fy­ing vol­canic swarms say they are afraid to go back to their homes out­side the im­me­di­ate dan­ger zone.

On­go­ing daily tremors and bursts of steam from the sum­mit have caused parts of the nor­mally bustling tourist re­gion to be nearly de­serted.

Mount Agung hasn’t erupted since 1963, when it killed about 1,000 peo­ple.
