Indonesian authorities are advised to stay away from the volcano danger zone
Authorities warned fishermen and travelers to stay at a distance of 2 kilometers from a smoking volcano, known as the "Child of Krakatoa." The volcano rises to 5 meters per year, and its current height of 400 meters.
Volcanologists believe that the danger of the volcano reached its highest level in recent memory. The reason for this was the sharp increase in tectonic activity. Number of shocks increased from 200 to 7,200 a day. Authorities most fear that the red-hot rocks can fall into the ocean, with higher shocks.
