Krakatoa, or Krakatau (IndonesianKrakatau), is a volcanic island situated in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in theIndonesian province of Lampung. The name is also used for the surrounding island group comprising the remnants of a much larger island of threevolcanic peaks which was obliterated in a cataclysmic 1883 eruption, unleashing huge tsunamis (killing more than 36,000 people) and destroying over two-thirds of the island. The explosion is considered to be the loudest sound ever heard in modern history, with reports of it being heard up to 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from its point of origin. The shock waves from the explosion were recorded on barographs worldwide.
