Violent eruption propels ash to 47,000 ft (15 km) altitude
10 Apr 2020 – The famous volcano, located between the islands of Java and Sumatra in the Indonesian province of Lampung, reportedly began erupting at 10:35 p.m. local time.
“Krakatau is erupting nonstop for 2 hours,” one social media user posted. “I live in Bogor and I can hear the noises as clear as everybody else hear. This feels like a nightmare”.
The volcano’s rumble was heard very clearly in West Java and Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta.
