In 1988 Krakatoa erupted again in February and continued erupting through to March 16 which was when small lava flows were reported flowing from the crater, it then continued through to April with continuous explosions and plumes of fire. November 12 1992 Krakatoa erupted again with such intensity it caused lava bombs to shoot out over the north coast and had lava flowing into the sea. In 1883 the eruption lasted from August 23 to 27, in 1988 explosive eruptions lasted February through to April and in 1992 the eruptions lasted the longest from 7 November 1992 through to August 14, 1993. The 1992 eruption caused lava flows up to 1 kilometer to the north adding 100 meters to the coastline. New vents have formed due to the eruptions and these, in turn, have led to the creation of a new volcanic island which is known as Anuk Krakatoa ("child of Krakatoa") the island is active and grows approximately 13cm each week. Krakatoa is still grumbling away today ready to explode, in fact, the last eruption was in 2001. This concludes that it is still active and likely to "blow it's top off" anytime.
