Krakatau Volcano, Indonesia
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.

Indonesia volcano prompts evacuation plan but coffee ok



Indonesian authorities have made plans to evacuate tens of thousands of residents from Lampung on southern Sumatra if a rumbling volcano gets worse, but officials saw little impact on production in the coffee-rich area



Indonesia's volcanology agency said the volcano was erupting intensively but posed no immediate danger.

"The impact on coffee production is likely minimum

Well at least "the impact on coffee production is likely minimum". I can now go make myself a fresh pot without worrying too much about it.

Yes, yes. Thank god the coffee is ok.


Anyway, to clarify, it looks like its not Krakatau, but its smaller child Anak Krakatau?

I think it goes this way: Krakatau disappeared when it blew big time, and Anak Krakatau has risen in it's place.

I am willing to say this is not "the" definative site, but they are usually on top of any eruptions and there is nothing on there. www.volcano.si.edu...

There's a bit of a discussion going on in the comments at the Eruptions blog about whether or not the situation at Krakatau is any more dangerous than it has been since the 1920s. Apparently evacuations are due to risk of tsunami.
