Volcano - Indonesia (Sunda) OCT

Three volcanos in Indonesia - including the one known as the Child of Krakatoa - are under close watch following heightened activity.

The alert on Mount Anak Krakatau was raised to the second-highest level on Friday.

Indonesia's Centre for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation made the move after the volcano threw up showers of ash.

The volcano, which lies in the Sunda strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra, is about 80 miles west of the capital Jakarta. - Source
