The son of Krakatoa Volcano, in Lampung Province, Sumatra, Indonesia, erupted again on Friday, May 10, 2019 around 12.54 local time. The incident did not generate problems and the height of the smoke column is unknown, since it was not observed from the hillside villages.
According to the Center for Volcanology and Mitigation of Geological Disasters (PVMBG), this eruption was recorded on a seismogram with a maximum amplitude of 54 mm and a duration of ± 13 minutes and 6 seconds.
Currently, Mount Anak Krakatau (Son of Krakatoa) is in Level II (Alert). People and tourists can not approach the crater within a radius of 2 km. of the crater.
The Son of Krakatoa is a volcano that was born in the ancient formation of the Krakatoa Volcano, just in what was left of the old caldera, which is the same as a fifth-century eruption, dated in the records of historians.
The son of Krakatoa grew and began to be seen from the year 1927, four decades after the famous massive eruption that killed more than 36 thousand people on August 27, 1883 (Wimpy S. Tjetjep, in Books: From the volcano to autonomy regional (2002)).
