JAKARTA, Lately, the media horrendous news about the threat of eruption of Mount Anak Krakatau with the status of alert. Presentation of news seem ludicrous as if the volcano will erupt.

The Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Surono asserted, the volcano alert status is nothing new. "It's been a long alert. He's not going to the next grade. Previously, Merapi has also been vigilant," said Surono told reporters shortly before attending the plenary cabinet meeting at the Presidential Office, Jakarta, Monday (11/01/2010).

Surono asserted, for residents or tourists located about two kilometers from the volcano, they remain safe. It has also been confirmed Surono to Banten Governor Ratu Atut Chosiyah who had asked the security of Mount Anak Krakatau. The reason is, there are a number of foreign tourists who questioned the security of the volcano.

According to Surono, currently there are 19 volcanoes in Indonesia with the status of alert, including Krakatoa. In addition, there are two volcanic alert status, such as the Mountain Mother of Halmahera in North Maluku and Karangetang. Surono rate it fair. "Naturally. Indonesia has the largest volcano in the world. Activities ordinary, routine," he said.
