Indonesian volcano that triggered tsunami loses two-thirds of its height

(CNN)Anak Krakatoa, the Indonesia volcano that triggered a deadly tsunami a week ago, has lost two-thirds of its height, a government agency said.

The volcano’s height went from 338 meters (1,108 feet) above sea level to 110 meters (360 feet), Indonesia’s Center of Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation said in a report.
Additional eruptions from Monday to Thursday also caused the volcano to lose volume of 150 million to 180 million cubic meters (5.3 billion to 6.4 billion cubic feet), the report said. Its volume is now 40 million to 70 million cubic meters (1.4 billion to 2.5 billion cubic feet).
