The volcanic unrest continues: Eruptions at Anak-Krakatau and Sinabung in Indonesia, Shinmoedake in Japan and Telica in Nicaragua


The volcanic unrest continues around the world with eruptions at Anak-Krakatau and Sinabung in Indonesia, Shinmoedake in Japan, Telica in Nicaragua and Kilauea in Hawaii in the last 2 days. These new eruptions follow those reported in my previous volcanic update of 5 days ago.

A new phase of activity has started at Anak-Krakatau in Indonesia

Anak-Krakatau in Indonesia erupted on June 19, 2018, sending an ash plume that reached a few hundred meters above the summit after dissipating slowly.

It is still too early to say if it is a sign of a new, more robust eruptive phase, but clearly shows that the volcano is restless that could result in an eruption in the near to medium future. The last explosion of the volcano occurred on February 19, 2017.

According to satellite images, thermal radiation has increased in the last few months, indicating that magma is near the surface.
