GAK published a series of photos showing the new activity at Anak Krakatau. A vent located on the S flank of the summit cone formed as pit crater around 23 October; on around 25 October, phreatic (?) and probably phreatomagmatic ash eruptions started from this location, producing clouds of ash 200-300 m high, and occurring at intervals of 3-6 minutes.

Krakatoa volcano in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra is showing an increased seismic activity as the Indonesian Volcanological Survey reports. Whether eruptive activity is already taking place, is not known at the moment due to bad obvservation conditions, but it is likely that there is or will be activity in the very near future.
