Krakatoa Pt. 2: The Explosion Heard ‘Round The World

After the first eruption of Krakatoa on August 26th, 1883, the citizens of the Sunda Strait may have assumed the worst was over. But they were about to experience a tsunami that would be the first of many over the next 24 hours. On top of this, pyroclastic flows were on their way, ready to burn those running for safety in the hills. With such an extreme level of catastrophe, it seemed that none would survive.

In 1883 between the south-Asian islands of Java and Sumatra, a deadly force was brewing. The volcano Krakatoa had been waiting to erupt for over a thousand years.
