Which volcano am I? #4

I am a volcano in Indonesia; I share the same name as the island on which I am found. In 1883, my eruption caused the island to explode: it was one of the most powerful explosions ever. It could be heard 3000 miles away and was four times more powerful than the biggest atomic bomb ever detonated. Which volcano am I?

I’ll award two signatures for identifying the correct volcano before I reveal the answer and then further signatures for anyone posting facts. Good luck 🙂

Well done to Josh, Nikola, Tamzin and Emilian for posting the correct answer: I’ll put two signatures each on the chart for you all 🙂 Now that we know it’s Krakatoa, who can post some CAREFULLY SELECTED facts about this volcano?
