Anak Krakatau spews out red-hot lava flares
Mount Anak Krakatau in the Sunda Strait on Tuesday began to spew out red-hot lava flares 500 to 700 meters into the sky from its southern crater.
The volcano has been showing signs of increased activity for nearly the past 15 days.
Anton, the chief of the volcano`s observation post, 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 00.00 to 06.00 local time on Tuesday the volcano produced 74 clouds of ashes, followed by four deep volcanic quakes, 20 shallow volcanic quakes, and four tremors.
