Indonesia's Anak Krakatau volcano spewed a column of ash 500 meters (1,640 feet) into the sky in the longest eruption since the explosive collapse of the island caused a deadly tsunami in 2018, scientists said Saturday.

Closed-circuit TV from Indonesia's Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation showed lava flares Friday night.
The agency said that the volcano was continuously erupting until Saturday morning. A level 2 alert status remained in place, the second-highest on a scale of four.
There were no casualties reported. The 2018  caused a tsunami along the coasts of Sumatra and Java, killing 430 people.
Anak Krakatau, which means Child of Kratakau, is the offspring of the famous Krakatau , whose monumental eruption in 1883 triggered a period of global cooling.
