Krakatoa eruption

Krakatoa eruption

The 1883 Eruption of Krakatoa in Indonesia was so loud that it was heard over 3000 miles away, which is the equivalent of hearing a sound from Ireland while you are in Boston. It ruptured the eardrums of sailors over 40 miles away and killed over 36,000 people directly from the eruptions and subsequent tsunamis.
