Weather History
The East Indies volcano Krakatoa exploded on this date in 1883, with the explosion being heard 2,500 miles away. The air wave from the explosion was recorded by every barograph in the world. The biggest effect of this event was that the global temperature was lowered by 1 degree over the next two years due to the airborne ash from the explosion.
