    Scientists and community leaders are warning those who live near the Mount Agung volcano in Bali not to underestimate the dangers of a potential eruption.

    Tens of thousands of locals were evacuated after the volcano started spewing ash last week, but some have already gone back to their villages.

    Mount Agung is one of the seven most likely to erupt volcanoes in the world.
