    At least 430 people are dead and 159 are still missing as torrential rain continues to hit Indonesia's coast after Saturday's tsunami.

    The rain added misery to the devastated area, hampering relief efforts and reducing visibility for experts attempting to determine what the Anak Krakatoa volcano will do next.

    Many are on high alert as the volcano, which caused the tsunami, remains active.

    Al Jazeera's Rob McBride reports from Sambolo village on the Java west coast.
