At least 43 people have been killed on the Indonesian islands of Java and Sumatra when a tsunami struck areas around the Sunda Strait late on Saturday following an undersea landslide caused by a volcano.

Whoa. Krakatoa terrifies me.

It’s not the most terrifying volcano (Tambora is on the other side of Java, nevermind Yellowstone) but the zero warning tsunami is extra terrifying. Reminds me of zero warning gas explosion on Lake Nyos.

Holy fuck that is terrifying! Like, in that sense of every individual human being rather insignificant compared to the mud ball we’re attached to… :slight_smile:
