As if 2020 wasn't weird enough ...
Volcano Anak Krakatau, the site of the largest volcanic eruption in the last 140 years, is erupting in Indonesia.
Check out the dramatic footage here:
La erupción del #Krakatoa es algo que si bien no pasaba desde el siglo XIX, era de esperarse. Sin embargo, hay que resaltar que en las últimas horas, son 4 los volcanes en Indonesia que han estado con actividad: Krakatoa, Semeru, Monte Merapi y Tambora. pic.twitter.com/v1iphZ11QG— José Parra (@masqueuncoach) April 11, 2020
According to reports, satellite imagery showed the massive blast to reach approximately 15 km high.
Its parent volcano, Krakatoa, exploded in 1883, killing 36,000 people. The ash reached all the way to Europe and global temperatures dropped several degrees. Krakatoa was completely destroyed in the blast, and Anak Krakatau was born out of the caldera.
