Video of Krakatau eruption , possibly from before the tsunami yesterday



Video of Krakatau on a 'normal day' October this year



"Anak Krakatau erupts before and after tsunami"

We are in the Grand Solar minumum and things are just starting to happen,history is repeating itself,devastation and destruction is on the way,it will get progressively worse

This seems to show that anak Krakatau is collapsed/ collapsing , also found at 0.22 - 0.36 better quality 3rd down above

The greenery that had established further down the slopes may be gone , vid shows boiling seawater surrounding eruptions

The other question is , this seems like a minor erruption.......what kind of activity does it take to throw a Tsunami like it did , seeing how low level the eruption actual was

wiki updated :


An eruption of the volcano on 22 December 2018 has been linked to a tsunami.[28] At 10:40 GMT, the disaster agency had placed the death toll at 222, with 843 injured and 28 missing. [29] According to The Guardian, "the tsunami is believed to have been caused by undersea landslides that followed an eruption of the Anak Krakatau volcano".[30] On 23 December, it was confirmed via satellite data and helicopter footage that the southwest sector of the volcano had collapsed, which triggered the tsunami, and the main conduit is now erupting from underwater producing Surtseyan-style activity. [31]


Meaning it will now erupt from under the sea and we'll see what 's left of Anak Krakatau when it cools down .

So the underwater activity will decide?

Im sorry im really ignorant on this.........

"On 23 December, it was confirmed via satellite data and helicopter footage that the southwest sector of the volcano had collapsed, which triggered the tsunami, and the main conduit is now erupting from underwater producing Surtseyan-style activity. [31]"

Anak Krakatau has basically exploded and it's disintegrated enough that the actual venting portion - the main conduit - where the lava comes out - is now under the sea , instead of at the top of the piled up mountain .

Most of Anak Krakatau is effectively gone , some of which will become dissipated in the atmosphere , however anak krakatau was not as large as Krakatoa island was before 1883 . So there will be less of a global effect . When that happened only one third of the original island was left- up to 30km cubed of material exploded . Something similar has happened again only on a slightly smaller scale - the cone has blown up and collapsed in on itself - see footage.

Venting below sea level will eventually push up another volcanic island , for now this old /new one is mostly gone .

What is left of the pile that was Anak Krakatai could collapse as well and that may create another local tsunami .

First visual information about the situation on Anak Krakatau island group itself has come in, revealing that a large part of Anak Krakatau's SW flank has collapsed, which most likely is the trigger for last night's tsunami.
An overflight of was undertaken today by the Kumparan agency and revealed continuous, violent phreatomagmatic explosions, i.e. driven by lava and water interaction.

The combined information allows a rough reconstruction of the events:

#1 A new surge of magma arrives in the upper conduit of Anak Krakatau from around 20-21 Dec, causing increasing explosive and effusive activity - strombolian explosions or lava fountains, and lava flow emission - from the summit vent. It looked more or less like this:

(video from a similar paroxysm in Sep 2018)
This activity probably reached its peak on the evening of 22 Dec, when it was clearly visible by naked eye from more than 40 km away on the coast.
#2 In the evening of 22 Dec, lava fountains fed flows that reached the sea, probably on the south or southeast shores of Anak Krakatau, in similar locations as during previous episodes this year.
#3 Around 21:00 local time, the weight of rapidly accumulated lava on the subaerial and submerged cone of Anak Krakatau triggered an instability and a larger landslide removed a part of the southwestern cone - a flank collapse occurred. This rapid displacement caused the (small, but devastating) tsunami which reached the Java coast around 21:30 (local time).
#4 As a consequence, sea water gained access to large masses of hot rocks and possibly the conduit itself, triggering an ongoing series of steam explosions that produced the steam and ash plume first observed later this morning on satellite data and seen in this video:

Erosion of material from the ongoing explosive activity and along the new shoreline continues to eat away parts of the island.

What will come next?
This is difficult to say, but at least to a large extent it will depend on how much magma continues to rise, whether new collapses occur and so on. A possibility of even larger explosions, pyroclastic flows, tsunamis is clearly increased. The alert level of the volcano was raised to red.

There's tons of threads and youtube videos that predict every date. Nothing more than throwing everything at the wall, eventually something is going to stick.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and all that jazz. If you want to be taken seriously you have to show your math.

The size of a tsunami would be related to how much water was displaced and how quickly it happens.
Eg. the seabed over a large area like 100s of square miles wouldn't have to move far to create a disaster for nearby populations close to sea level. It's all about the volume of water being displaced.

I think the locals are fortunate that this disaster wasn't a lot larger. Looks like Anak Krakatau has reset itself with a burp instead of a blast this time.

So to you and the above poster in reply.......being that I dont know the area....are we thinking its over for now or is this an immediate threat still?

I know thats a huge question but maybe one of you is keen on the geology or the news there......

What happened was a large splash when the side of the volcano fell into the sea creating the wave. It's still very active and ash clouds are obscuring the view of the island preventing anyone assessing what's left at risk of falling to create more waves at this time. Need to wait for it to settle down to make any educated guesses on what's next.

That I get.......but for some reason i thought there was more land mass, under water that moved, again i know nothing of all this, was hard to believe what fell in the vid caused the Tsunami that destroyed what it did.....but maybe im underestimating




. It's still very active and ash clouds are obscuring the view of the island preventing anyone assessing what's left at risk of falling to create more waves at this time.


Do we know the potential?

what a crazy situation......Wish i could be there to help....god poor people......

From th site linked above who spend time studying volcanoes :


What will come next? This is difficult to say, but at least to a large extent it will depend on how much magma continues to rise, whether new collapses occur and so on. A possibility of even larger explosions, pyroclastic flows, tsunamis is clearly increased. The alert level of the volcano was raised to red. All news about: Krakatoa volcano


NB what the recent videos show is a large explosion but it cuts as the ash cloud continues to develop .

Latest update is

Sunday, Dec 23, 2018 A major explosive eruption might have occurred at the volcano earlier this morning. VAAC Darwin spotted a large cloud, possibly an ash plume from the eruption reaching approx. 55,000 ft (15 km) altitude and drifting S and SW. ...

That's not usual either and it could form a problem

ahhh yes it is linked without a doubt, we can obviously see that

but what's the root cause? that's what they don't want to disclose


This is all linked to the Earth responding to the magnetic field change occurring on our Sun that we have a lot of historical data that still doesn't paint the whole picture of the millions of years.

Following that logic, the volcano's and EQ's seem to be a result of the Earth's Mag Poles moving like I have tried to have threads discussing. I started those in an attempt to make us aware of other possibilities that seem more likely to explain why the magma is moving to the surface with reports of this happening worldwide and why weather patterns are adapting to the magnetic field moving. Too many recent occurrences of EQ's for my time on this Earth.

I guess you could say at least it wasn't as bad as the 2004 quake around the same time, however there could be a more lethal one to come in that area or along the tectonic plate!
