When Krakatoa erupted, it was heard from 3,000 miles away. Krakatoa is located in Lampung, Indonesia which is also in the continent of Asia. It is very warm near the volcano because it is very close to the equator.
The last time the volcano erupted was in 2014. But that was not as severe as the 1833 eruption. The 1833 eruption is reported as the loudest sound ever in history. The eruption sent hot ash 50 miles into the air.
