Mt. Anak Krakatau sees 72 eruptions

Sat, November 20 2010 | 11:32 am

SERANG: Mount Anak Krakatau saw 72 eruptions on Thursday, one eruption more compared to the previous day which saw 71, the monitoring post reported Friday.

“The status is still at level II or caution status,” the post was quoted by Antara as saying. The statuses for volcanos are: normal, caution, alert and danger.

The government has set Anak Krakatau as a danger zone within a 2-kilometer radius from its peak.

Residents living in Anyer, Serang, said they could hear the sounds of eruptions only in the evening when the town was quiet. “In the morning and afternoon the sounds were overpowered by noise from vehicles and the people,” Doni said. — JP
