Anak Krakatoa volcano erupted in Indonesia

The volcano is located in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra and has erupted eight times since Monday morning. On Tuesday, a column of volcanic ash rose to a height of about 2 kilometers and stretched over the strait. Authorities have banned the public from getting within 5 kilometers of the volcano to prevent unwanted events. The eruption was assigned the third of four possible levels of danger according to the system adopted in Indonesia.

History of Anak Krakatoa volcano

Anak Krakatau Volcano was formerly the site of the famous Krakatau Volcano. However, an 1883 eruption that killed 35,000 people destroyed the volcano. A series of eruptions between 1927 and 1930 resulted in the Anak Krakatau volcano.

Consequences of the eruption

The 2018 eruption of Anak Krakatoa Volcano resulted in a tsunami that killed 429 people. An eruption in 2023 could lead to even more serious consequences. Indonesian authorities must be prepared to evacuate the population and provide the necessary assistance to the victims.

Expert Opinion

Experts note that Indonesia is one of the most seismically active zones on the planet, making it particularly vulnerable to natural disasters. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, each year Indonesia experiences about 15% of all earthquakes in the world with a magnitude greater than 6.0.


The eruption of the Anak Krakatoa volcano is a new threat to Indonesia. Authorities must be prepared to provide assistance to victims and evacuate the population. Indonesia, as a seismically active area, must take measures to prevent disasters and prepare for possible natural disasters.
