Indonesia's Krakatau Volcano Continues to Erupt After Triggering Deadly Tsunami

Mount Krakatau, a volcano also known as Anak Krakatau, continued to erupt on December 23, one day after a deadly tsunami hit the coastal provinces of Banten and Lampung.

The tsunami, believed to have been caused by an underwater landslide triggered by a volcanic eruption on the Krakatoa island chain, killed at least 281 people and injured 1,016 others along the Sunda Strait, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman of Indonesia’s Disaster Management Agency, said.
