The volcano continues to erupt and it seems that the eruption by now has reached a phase of being more or less continuous.
Observers report seeing frequent explosions that generate ash plumes that rise few hundreds of meters from the summit crater and glow from the summit area.
According to information from friends at the volcano observatory, a (small) lava flow is emerging from there, which is in line with a moderately strong thermal signal detected on satellite data.
Seismic data show increasingly frequent small explosions and shallow volcanic quakes, our expedition leader Andi reported who will soon visit the volcano with our next Krakatau volcano special tour.
