Tremors from a 3,031-meter (9,900-foot) volcano, that prove rising magma, have reduced in array from about 1,000 a day to fewer than 400.
Kasbani pronounced a radius of a volcano’s risk section declined from 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) to 7.5 kilometers (4.5 miles) from Agung’s crater.
The supervision volcano group pronounced a hillside means villagers who evacuated though do not live in a new risk section could lapse home, though should not try tighten to a crater, that was still emitting smoke.
