by Alex Fox/Smithsonianmag.com

Indonesia’s Anak Krakatau volcano blasted a thick, gray cloud of ash some 1,640 feet skyward over the weekend in the longest-lasting eruption since 2018, reports Edna Tarigan for the Associated Press.

Indonesia has not reported any damages or deaths so far, according to a statement from the country’s Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation. The country issued a level 2 alert, the second-highest on a scale of four. Level 2 alerts indicate “watch” status, meaning the volcano is “exhibiting heightened or escalating unrest with increased potential of eruption, timeframe uncertain, or an eruption is underway but poses limited hazards,” according to the United States Geological Survey.
