The tireless volcano watchers at Activolcans report that activity continues at Anak Krakatau (‘child of Krakatau’), perhaps at slightly lower intensity than recently; low-level eruptive activity has been pretty much continual since October 2007, and the volcano has been at level III (orange) alert since April. Anak Krakatau is a young volcanic cone constructed within the caldera left by the 1883 Krakatau eruption. Since its emergence in 1927 it has been the site of frequent eruptions.

Anak Krakatau is continuously monitored by the Indonesia volcanological authorities, who have a website dedicated to the volcano which reports real-time data: KrakMon Online.

The Indonesian volcanological authorities have raised the alert levels for Ibu and Anak Krakatau to level III, orange, following recent ash eruptions and an increases in seismic activity at both volcanoes. This is the second-highest alert level. No evacuations have been ordered but people have been warned not to approach either volcano closer than 2 kilometres, and the local inhabitants around Ibu have been advised to wear masks to protect themselves from ash.

Indonesia now has three volcanoes on level III orange alert: Egon, Ibu, and Anak Krakatau. A guide to the Indonesian volcano alert system can be found here.
