The eruptions of Krakatoa on August 26-27, 1883 were among the most violent volcanic events ever recorded.  The eruption was the equivalent of 13,000 nuclear blasts the size of Little Boy that devastated Hiroshima.  It obliterated two-thirds of the island on which it is located.  Although part of Indonesia, the blast was heard as far away as Perth Australia. Adding to the destruction were the immense tidal waves that followed the event.   (Wikipedia)

It is not Krakatoa, but here is a nice volcano tat.
