Earthquakes and Volcanoes
By Alex Moreno, Jason Montoya, and Lexi Ray
Earthquake: Honshu (Japan)
Krakatoa is located in Lampung, Indonesia,
It is a caldera type volcano.
Java and Sumatra are two major cities that would be in danger if Krakatoa erupts.
The last major eruption was in 1883.
It caused about 36,000 deaths.
The cost of the damage of the last big eruption was $1.5 billion (US dollars)
Interestingly, and frighteningly, Krakatoa is still active. Scientists think it is just a matter of time before it has another major eruption, one that will be even more destructive than the one in 1883.
