Krakatoa volcano (Sunda Strait, Indonesia): extraordinary footage showing intense explosions of water with lava

Here are some of the most terrifying explosions on Anak Krakatau recently filmed. Our correspondent Doni Janskulo from Kalianda, Lampung, took advantage of very clear views yesterday and managed to take some of the most extraordinary and dramatic footage yet of the explosions on collapsed Anak Krakatau island.
Even though it is from 40 km away, it shows the activity in amazing detail. It takes place at the island of Anak Krakatau, hidden from view now behind Panjang island seen in the foreground. The active vent is now under water and lets sea water interact violently with the rising magma: the result is so-called Surtseyan activity, a type of volcanic eruption that takes place in shallow seas or lakes, named after the island of Surtsey which appeared off the southern coast of Iceland and had this activity in 1963.
In this video, very powerful explosions can be seen generating jets of ash, debris, steam and water to several hundred meters ("rooster tails") radially from the explosion point.
In addition, large surges (horizontally expanding hot clouds of steam mixed with ash) can be seen sometimes engulfing the whole island of Panjang, which is hiding the view of Anak Krakatau itself.
Be sure to watch to the end, at times, the explosions tend to be bigger and bigger throughout the video.

The video was generously granted for display here by local resident and videographer Doni Janskulo, who lost most of his equipment during the 22 Dec 2018 tsunami that devastated Java's west coast.
