Krakatoa (Krakatau) volcano news & eruption updates:
Anak Krakatau volcano (Sund Strait, Indonesia): new eruption
Sunday Apr 05, 2009 10:31 AM |
As our correspondant from Java reports, new strong strombolian activity has resumed from Anak Krakatau.
Thursday, Aug 21, 2008
According to a news article, explosions and earthquakes from Anak Krakatau averaged 120 per day approximately during 11-17 August. Monitoring personnel observed active lava flows, ejecting rocks, and emissions of "smoke."
Saturday, Jun 21, 2008
Strombolian activity with frequent ash explosions creating plumes of up to about 1 km height continue at Anak Krakatau.
Tuesday, Jun 03, 2008
Strombolian activity with frequent ash explosions are continuing at Anak Krakatau. Ash plumes reach approximately 1 km height.
Monday, May 19, 2008
Anak Krakatau continues to produce small ash-rich strombolian explosions. An indirect report from about one week ago about "lava reaching the sea", i.e. lava flows, need to be verified as it cannot be confirmed from other sources so far. More likely, ejected incandescent blocks are occasionally reaching the sea.
Thursday, Apr 24, 2008
Anak Krakatau is getting active again. CVGHM reported increased seismicity during 14-21 April as well as ash plumes accompanied by ejections of incandescent rocks observed during field observations on 16, 17, and 18 April. The renewed eruption affected the summit and the E and S flanks. Booming noises were reported and occasionally heard at an observation post 42 km away. The Alert Level was raised to 3 (on a scale of 1-4) on 21 April.

: A strong earthquake swarm and increased inflation were detected in August 2015 and triggered authorities to raise the alert level, as volcanologists think that a larger eruption could follow. News and updates on the events can be found on this page.
