Interesting about the loudest sound ever recorded.....
The eruption of the Krakatoa volcano in Indonesia on August 27, 1883, is believed to be the loudest sound ever recorded in human history. The sound generated by the volcanic eruption was so loud it ruptured eardrums of people 40 miles away, sent sound waves around the world four times, and could be heard 3,000 miles away. The devastation from the explosion — which packed power equivalent to 10,000 Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs, made the Krakatoa eruption one of history’s deadliest natural disasters. Over 36,000 people were killed by the volcano and the tsunamis it triggered.
