This is a very big volcano, and a potentially serious situation.

Anak Krakatau Volcano Spews Red-hot Lava Flares


JAKARTA, Nov 6 (Bernama) -- The Anak Krakatau volcano in the Sunda Strait today began to spew red-hot lava flares 500 to 700 metres into the sky from its southern crater.

The volcano has been showing signs of increased activity for the past 15 days.

Chief of the volcano`s observation post, Anton, said the red-hot lava flares were triggered by the volcano`s increased activity.

According to data recorded by the volcano`s observation post, from midnight to 6am local time today, the volcano produced 74 clouds of ashes, followed by four deep volcanic quakes, 20 shallow volcanic quakes and four tremors.

Meanwhile, the Bandung-based Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Centre is still keeping the volcano`s status at the third level of alert.

"Due to the emission of ashes followed by volcanic quakes lasting three to six minutes, it is dangerous for tourists to get close to the volcano`s slopes. Visitors are only allowed to watch its activity from a distance of three kilometres," Anton was quoted as saying by Antara news agency.

The Mt Kelud volcano on Java island is also on the verge of eruption, with a dome of magma said to be forming under a crater lake.

Three volcanoes simmering in Indonesia

BLITAR, Indonesia -- Scientists in Indonesia closely monitored three simmering volcanoes across the disaster-prone nation Friday, including the offspring of infamous Krakatau off Sumatra island.

Ash has been spewing some 200 meters (yards) into the air since Tuesday at Anak Krakatau, or Child of Krakatau, the volcano left behind after Krakatau blew in 1883 and killed some 36,000 people, scientist Agus Budianto told Agence France-Presse.

"We will issue a recommendation for visitors not to come close to Anak Krakatau, (to maintain) at least a three-kilometer (two-mile) distance," said Budianto, Indonesia's Volcanology and Geology Disaster Mitigation Centre.

Anak Krakatau forms part of a popular international tourist destination about 40 kilometers off Sumatra island. Visitors typically tour the waters around the volcano by boat.

Budianto said scientists were considering raising the alert status of the volcano a rung up on its four-tier system, but said the disaster potential of the volcano, being far offshore, was low.

Meanwhile, Mount Soputan on Sulawesi island spewed more smoke and lava, a day after the volcano, one of Sulawesi's most active, shot clouds of smoke 1,500 meters (one mile) into the air and lava down its slopes.

Scientist Jemmi Runtuwene, speaking from the volcano's monitoring post about 25 kilometers from its crater, said on Friday that the smoke column only reached 100 to 600 meters and that tremors were calmer compared to Thursday.

Residents living in the sparsely-populated surrounding areas have not been evacuated.

On Indonesia's main island of Java, Mount Kelut remained on red alert, meaning an eruption is feared at any time.

An advisory that the volcano could blow was issued on October 16 and sparked efforts to evacuate some 130,000 people living within 10 kilometers of its water-filled crater.

"The temperature of the crater lake is still recording a slight increase," said Sulis, a scientist at Kelut's monitoring post.

The rise indicates sustained volcanic activity and the risk of an eruption. More shallow and deep tremors caused by magma activity have also been recorded, he said.

Disaster management officials have had difficulties convincing locals that they face imminent danger, though many shelters are filling up at night.

An AFP correspondent in Blitar, one of the two districts straddling the volcano, said most evacuation shelters he visited on Friday were empty.

Kelut most recently erupted in 1990, sending searing gasses and volcanic debris rushing down its slopes that killed 34 people.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire," where continental plates collide, causing frequent seismic and volcanic activity. The archipelago nation is home to 129 active volcanoes, including 21 on Java.
