Bali airport closed. Update from BBC news 1 hour ago:
About 100,000 people near Bali's Mount Agung have been ordered to evacuate as officials fear a major eruption.

Indonesian authorities have raised the state of alert to its highest level, and expanded the exclusion zone around the rumbling volcano.

The island's airport has now closed, leaving thousands stranded in the tourist hotspot.

The live stream is showing some action in the night sky right now. Looks like some fireworks going off in the foreground.

... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

Now all the Aussies will be bitching about being grounded in Bali and " Why didn't the airlines warn us....?".

everyone was warned before flying to bali.
6pm: 'Significant volume of magma pools to surface'

Heat signatures picked up by Nasa satellites are pointing towards vast amounts of magma pooling around Mount Agung's summit.
MAGMA Indonesia tweeted: "Tonight, for the first time a thermal anomaly was detected in the crater of Mount Agung by NASA Modis satellite, about 70 megawatts of power (source: mirovaweb.it).
"This indicates that a significant volume of magma had been on the surface."

Nearly 60,000 holidaymakers who hoped to blissfully spend their time on the paradise island have instead found themselves in travel hell.
More than 400 flights from Bali's international airport have been cancelled, with stranded tourists unable to get back home.

4.10pm: Lahars could impact those outside Agung’s danger zone, expert warns

Dangerous mudflows, known as lahars, have been seen pouring down Mount Agung but could travel a long way from the volcano.
Professor Joachim Gottsmann, head of volcanology at Bristol University, told Express.co.uk: “Lahars can perhaps be best described as being similar to very wet concrete."
He said “They are devastating because they are fast moving and erosive due to their volcanic debris load - they can also travel very far. Examples in the Andes report a 400km run out distance from the source.

One of the reason the authorities increased the alert level to four is because the magma is getting higher and higher - and these images show exactly how high it is now.

10.37am: 'The eruption IS occurring now'
Volcanologist Dr Janine Krippner tweeted: “Can I just point out something... So many people are saying that an eruption at #Agung is imminent...
“It is erupting now and has been for > 2 days! This IS an eruption, the eruption IS occurring now. There is a risk of a larger eruption, but this IS an erupting volcano.”

12.25pm: Explosions throw out molten rock and ash
David Pyle, a volcano expert at the University of Oxford, said: "It remains possible that the eruptive crisis could continue for some time."
He added: "What we are seeing at the moment are small explosions, throwing out hot gases and fragments of molten rock, or ash."
