Just read that the Karakatau volcano is active 10.000 of people has te be evacuated.

Let's hope it will not erupt.

Eruptions from Krakatau volcano, Indonesia have forced the evacuation of tens of thousands residents. Seven districts affected are Kalianda, Rajabasa, Katibung, Sidomulyo, Ketapang, Sragi and Palas. On Monday ash from Anak Krakatau continued to cover residential areas in parts of Banten province and South Lampung. Visual observations showed ash emissions reaching a height of 600 m and drifting east. Ashfall has affected the operation of seismometers on the volcano. Fisherman and tourists are advised to stay at least 2 km from the volcano.

I can think of few words that put a fear in me like the name of this thread does.

That response seems to be understood by the media because all of a sudden it is important to get the name of the mountain right in thier reports instead of the century old practice of calling it Krakatoa.
