THE EXPLOSION OF KRAKATOA
There are few sights that are more impressive and awesome than the eruption of an active volcano.
There are few natural events that so singularly dwarf man’s puny attempts to control his environment.
Perhaps the greatest volcanic eruption of modern times took place in 1883 when the island of Krakatoa in Indonesia blew up as the result of a volcanic explosion.
An enormous tidal wave resulted that proved catastrophic to the nearby coasts of Java and Sumatra.
New islands were formed by the lava that poured out, and debris was scattered across the Indian Ocean for hundreds of miles. Volcanic material, dispersed seventeen miles into the atmosphere, created startlingly beautiful sunsets for years afterwards.
