Business Continuity and Volcanoes – So Far, and Yet So Near

The Agung volcano in Indonesia has been in the news recently. At time of writing, observers are sending back reports of clouds and glows that suggest that major eruption could be imminent.

Evacuations of hundreds of thousands of people from the area have already been carried out. The authorities have cautiously allowed nearby airports to function, while keeping a close eye on the state of the volcano.

The business continuity impact on Indonesia is clear, with emergency services on the go, and the population and the tourist industry trying to cope with the disruption. Less obvious perhaps is the impact of Agung on the other side of the world.

This may sound a little like the classic chaos theory concept of a butterfly flapping its wings in the Pacific and setting off a storm, thousands of miles away.
