Second Indonesian Volcano Erupts

With several volcanos in Indonesia increasing their activities recently following Mount Merapi's eruption on Tuesday, a second Indonesian volcano has erupted, with another earthquake of 5.0 mag. striking on Sunday southwest of Sumatra, Indonesia.

Indonesia's Anak Krakatau volcano in Sunda Strait, straddling East Java and Sumatra, has spewed ash and flaming rocks, prompting staff at the observation post in Pasauran, Banten Province to stay on a 24-hour watch, with residents in Pasauran being told to stay at least two kilometres away from the volcano.
