Anak Krakatau Volcano – Small Eruptions – 7th April 2012

On the morning of the 7th April 2012 Anak Krakatau started to produce small eruptions from the southern part of the crater. The eruption clouds only reached a height of 100-150meters and only contained small amounts of ash and only a little rockfall, the eruptions was not of a explosive character. The rest of the crater and its fumaroles are producing a continuous white cloud of steam/gas, rising to greater heights than the eruption clouds from the southern part of the crater. Additionally the southern/southwestern part of the outer part of the crater does now have fumaroles, indicating that magma is trapped under this part of the cone. -Youtube

    Kind of makes you think it is building up to do something fairly significant.
