5.0


Oops! A few minutes before 6 in the morning local time, we were shaken out of bed by an earthquake, the first real earthquake since the rising and then again abating activity of Mount Agung. What we had before was always just one short beat at a time. This one, however, was a real quake, whose energy increased and declined several times and which lasted several seconds. The authorities measured an intensity of 5.0. The epicenter is assumed to be 30-35 km to the North. And there are aftershocks even now while I am writing. We all hope until the very last moment that this is not the big entrance of the volcano...
