(ECNS) -- The Chinese Consulate-General in Denpasar, Indonesia, has issued an emergency alert over the possible eruption of the Mount Agung volcano on the tourist island of Bali.
Indonesian authorities raised the alert level for the second time in less than a week following an increase in volcanic earthquakes.
Experts said the volcano might erupt in two weeks.
For safety, people should stay at least six kilometers from the crater, and at least 7.5 kilometers away to the north, southeast and south-southwest, according to The National Disaster Mitigation Agency in Indonesia.
The Chinese Consulate-General urged Chinese tourists to pay close attention to tourism alerts and stay away from areas close to the volcano.
Agung, about 72 kilometers to the northeast of the tourist hotspot of Kuta, last erupted in 1963, killing 1,100 people and hurling ash as high as 10 kilometers.
