Bali volcano: Lava pools up in crater, ‘will certainly spill over to the slopes’

Indonesian authorities on Monday expanded the established danger zone around an erupting volcano that is hurling ash 9,800 feet into the atmosphere and whose explosions could be heard over seven miles away.

Experts said lava is welling up in the crater, sometimes reflected as a reddish-yellow glow in the ash plumes. The agency raised the volcano’s alert to the highest level early Monday and expanded the danger zone to six miles. It said that a larger eruption is possible.
