Around 62,000 people lived in the danger zone before the evacuations, according to Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency, but residents just outside the area have also left their homes out of fear.

Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, the United States and the UK have all issued warning that increased volcanic activity at Mount Agung in eastern Bali could disrupt flights to and from one of the world's most popular tourist destinations.

Disaster officials are now working with the police, the military, and aid organizations like the Red Cross to dispatch vehicles filled with food, water, blankets and other necessities to evacuation centers. But officials now said people are fleeing even farther areas.

About 17,000 cattle need to be evacuated from the four Karangasem districts in the red zones of Mt Agung, which would be directly affected in the event of an eruption.

Officials estimate there are at least 30,000 cows within a 12-kilometre radius of the mountain's summit, and efforts to relocate them are ongoing.

"I was very anxious about the situation" said Nyoman Suarta, who lives in a village just outside the danger zone.
