Why do we need a volcano labeled in the USA?
Posted March 16, 2018 10:27:03The word “volcano” in the U.S. refers to volcanic debris or ash.
But the word is also used to describe volcanoes, including Mount St. Helens in Washington state, which is sometimes labeled the largest volcano in the world.
The volcano’s name is “St. Helios” and it’s a volcano.
When it erupts, the ash is visible for miles, sometimes for days.
The word comes from the Greek word “sthelos” meaning “smaller, smaller.”
The volcano is the largest in the Cascade Range in Washington, which spans from Washington state to Oregon and Montana.
The mountain is called Capri Volcano because it’s known for its candlelight displays, and the name has been used to refer to the mountain since at least the 1920s.
