“There is a coderoodsituatie. All flights are rerouted due to the volcanic ash from Anak Krakatau,” a spokesman of the Indonesian air traffic control AirNav.

The Indonesian authorities warned earlier for “extreme weather and high waves” around the volcano. Also they entreated it to stay away from the coast, which is Saturday, hit by a tsunami. The death toll is now at 430, reports the Indonesian disaster agency BNPB.

The tsunami from Saturday is caused by a part of the volcano Anak Krakatoa in the strait between South Sumatra and West Java collapsed. The meteorological service, BMKG, keeps the volcano since then carefully monitored.
