TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe chief of geology at the Energy and Mineral Resource Ministry (ESDM), Rudy Suhendar, asserted that the explosive sound heard by people in several parts of Jakarta and Bogor was not originated from the eruption of Mount Anak Krakatau (Anak Krakatoa) in Sunda Strait, Lampung Province.

"There is no explosive sound heard at Banten monitoring post since the first eruption until now. So, the eruption can't be linked to the explosive sound," Rudy said, as reported by the Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Agency (PVMBG) on its official Instagram account, Saturday, April 11.

PVMBG reiterated that it wasn't aware of the origin of the explosive sound. They stated that the eruption of Anak krakatau had been increasing since Friday, April 10, at 22:00 local time.

The agency went on to say that there was no large magma emission recorded by satellite view. The magma emission was rather weak, PVMBG reported.

It said that lightning was indeed seen around the volcano but the officer at Banten monitoring post did not hear any explosive sound.
