Balinese Volcano ''Set to Erupt''

The last time Mt Agung in Bali, Indonesia erupted was in 1963-64.    The Balinese people believe that Mt Agung is a replica of Mt Meru, the central axis of the universe. The most important temple on Bali, Pura Besakih, is located high on the slopes of Mt Agung.

Today there is an SOS warning that Mt Agung is ''set to erupt within hours''.  Whether it erupts, or continues to just blow smoke, is anyone's guess.
