50,000 Flee Bali Over Fears of Volcanic Eruption

About 50,000 people in Indonesia have fled their homes over deep concerns that volcano Mount Agung may erupt for the first time in at least 50 years. The volcano—on the resort island of Bali—has been rumbling since August. At least 1,000 people died when it last erupted in 1963. “There are still people who don’t want to be evacuated,” said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for the disaster-mitigation agency.
