Krakatoa volcano (Indonesia): small eruption this morning

Steam plume rising from Anak Krakatau earlier today (image: PVMBG)
A short-lived eruption occurred this morning at Anak Krakatau. At 00:26 local time, seismic instruments showed an eruption signal lasting about 2 and a half minutes.
Later in the day, a steam plume could be seen rising from the island group. A small thermal signal is present on satellite data. At the moment, it is unclear whether this is a sign of a new eruptive phase or remains as a single, isolated event.
The alert status of Krakatoa remains at 3 ("Siaga", on a scale of 1-4).
