Summary: Indonesia's Anak Krakatau volcano in Sunda Strait, straddling East Java and Sumatra, spewed ash and flaming rocks.
Anak Krakatau means 'Child of Krakatau', named so because it rose in the place of Krakatoa volcano after it blew itself apart in one of the most destructive eruptions in history in 1883.
Until now we are still on alert level but when we examined our equipment on October 27 and 28 we experienced tremors," said Anton Priambudi, a volcanologist observing Anak Krakatau.
Anak Krakatau ("son of Krakatau") is still active, and the risk of another eruption or earthquake, and a resulting tsunami, loom large.
Officials have raised the alert level for Anak Krakatau to "high", and have issued warnings for people to stay away from the area.
