Krakatau volcano news & eruption updates:
Anak Krakatau volcano (Sunda Strait, Indonesia): heightened activity
Monday Jan 24, 2011 14:24 PM |
Krakatau continues to erupt in the Sunda Strait. In January, explosions increased in intensity and size, causing ash fall on the coast 40 km away.

A small group of VolcanoDiscovery visited Krakatau between 9-11 November: During this time, we observed strong ash emissions from the summit crater, a twin crater with two craters separated by a narrow ridge, one breached to the SE at the same position of the older summit crater and one facing to the NW. The 2007-2009 crater and lava dome complex to the S beneath the summit crater are mostly covered, but still morphologically visible. ... Lees alle

Explosive activity at Anak Krakatau has resumed over the past weeks. Strong vulcanian-type eruptions from the growing lava dome in the new crater occur at intervals of 90-360 minutes as Yohannes one of our correspondants reports from a recent visit. Blocks are being thrown over the whole of the southern part of the island, including the forest and often reach the water as well. Small pyroclastic flows sometimes develop on the slope of the summit cone. The island must be regarded as an extremely dangerous place to be at the moment. Whoever visits the island should be aware of the risk of a sudden violent explosion, especially because there is little warning before an explosion and there are long intervals of quiet in between. ...
