1883 eruption of Krakatoa
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies, began in May 1883 and culminated with several destructive eruptions of the Krakatoa caldera on 26 August 1883, destroying much of the island and its surrounding archipelago. Additional alleged seismic activity continued to be reported until February 1884, though reports of those after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation.
