Which volcano has been the most active since August?
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Geological Survey said Saturday that the U.K. has been at the epicenter of the volcano eruption that destroyed much of the country’s tourism industry.
The United Kingdom, Ireland and Italy all reported at least one reported death and more than 1,000 injured in the eruptions, which occurred Aug. 19-21, but none have died as a result of the ashfall.
The British government reported two deaths, one of which was a boy.
A woman was also hospitalized after falling from the top of the Great North Way volcano.
More than 1.5 million people had been evacuated, and the U to have more than 3 million square miles of ash cover the area.
Volcanic eruptions in the United States are rare, occurring in relatively small areas, but scientists say they can be destructive.
In recent years, the National Volcanism Awareness Program has called for more frequent warnings, stronger restrictions on travel and more testing of travel restrictions.
