JAKARTA, INDONESIA (BNO NEWS) -- Indonesian officials on Wednesday warned residents of lethal gases following Mount Anak Krakatau's increased volcanic activity. Monitoring chief of Mount Anak Krakatau in Cinangka, Anton Tripambundi, warned that if the gas is inhaled, it could lead to fatal consecuences. For those who inhale, a shortness of breath will be experienced, fainting, and even death. Hot ash was spewed out of the volcano, reaching up to 1.7 kilometers (1 mile) into the sky and releasing toxic gases. Mount Anak Krakatau is located on the Sunda Strait off the west coast of Java, near Krakatau Island and to the southeast of Sumatra. "The poisonous gas of Anak Krakatau is not tasteless, odorless, and does not have form. So the existence of a toxic gas might not be noticed if you are in the area," Tripambundi said, explaining that there are 10 different types of toxic gas contents released during the eruption.
