Which volcano is the most dangerous in the world?
As a volcanic storm approaches, the news comes with an urgency, especially for a country as vulnerable as Peru.
The capital Lima is currently experiencing a record-breaking 3,826 days without power, and this week’s eruption is the deadliest so far.
The most recent eruption of the volcano, on September 20, killed at least 20 people.
It has also killed over 1,000 and wounded over 10,000.
But while there are plenty of other dangerous volcanoes in the region, few have caused so much destruction in such a short time.
What are some of the other dangerous volcanic eruptions in the Americas?
There are a few.
El Chichén Itzá is the world’s deadliest volcano.
In April 2009, it erupted in the town of Iguala, Mexico, killing 14 people.
Another eruption in April 2011 killed 15 people in the province of Guerrero, while in August 2011 a similar eruption killed 18 people.
The most devastating volcano in Latin America is Volcan Olmec in the Andes Mountains.
Its peak is located in the city of La Paz in Bolivia.
It has a maximum eruption height of 3,979 metres, and its eruption is so violent it has killed more than a dozen people.
It is thought to be at least two-thirds larger than the previous deadliest volcano, Vesuvius in the early 2000s.
In addition to the two deadliest volcanoes, the deadliest volcano in the US is Mount St Helens, which erupted in February 2006 and killed more people than any other volcano.
What are the biggest earthquakes in the USA?
According to the US Geological Survey, the largest earthquake recorded in the United States was in 1923, which was followed by the 1906 quake in Seattle.
Since then, there have been some other big earthquakes in which the epicentre of the shaking was on the ground.
In December 2012, the magnitude 5.3 temblor off the coast of Long Beach, California, killed 11 people.
The US Geological Service says that more than 60,000 people have been injured by earthquakes in California since 1976.
Is there any evidence that volcanoes are responsible for global warming?
The Earth’s crust is the result of the interaction between many rock-forming bodies, including those that form volcanoes.
These rocks are also composed of carbon and other elements.
Scientists have found that some of these rocks have been formed when hot lava erupted from volcanoes during volcanic erucles.
How big is the US volcano?
The US is the fourth largest volcanic region in the planet and it has a population of more than 3 billion.
The largest eruption is Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines.
It has been erupting for more than 10,500 years, and was responsible for the deaths of over 5,000,000 Filipinos, including more than half a million people.
At its peak, it spewed up to 17,000 cubic kilometres (2,000 million cubic feet) of ash and ash plumes, and the area affected was about one-third of the size of Washington state.
What does it mean if a volcano erupts?
Scientists say a major eruption will usually have a powerful tremor that can travel at a speed of up to 120 kilometres per hour (75 mph).
If that happens, a small area of land will be destroyed and thousands of people will be displaced.
But there will also be damage to infrastructure and human lives.
