Eruptions Continue at Mount Anak Krakatau in Lampung

Share This Post:

Mount Anak Krakatau in the Sunda Strait, South Lampung, Lampung, has erupted 156 times over the past two days, according to the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG).

The volcano, the name of which translates into English as “Child of Krakatau”, previously erupted in September, when the authorities raised its status to waspada (caution), the second of the four-level national volcano alert system. That status has been maintained until the time of writing.

Residents have also been warned to steer at least 2 kilometers clear of the volcano. An official at the BMKG’s Mount Anak Krakatau monitoring post, Deny Mardiano, reported sounds of thunder and little tremors during the eruption.

“The waves, however, happened to be calm [following the tremors and eruption],” the agency said, as reported by Antara.
