The Indonesian government warned people to avoid the coast as the country raised the danger level on an island volcano that triggered a devastating tsunami over the weekend, killing at least 430 people. The Indonesian volcanology agency on Thursday raised the Anak Krakatau volcano alert status to the second-highest level and doubled the exclusion zone, rerouting all flights within a 3-mile radius.
“There’s still a chance of a landslide, even under the sea level or on the sea level,” said Rudy Sunendar, head of the energy ministry’s geology department.
