  • The World’s 10 Most Dangerous Active Volcanoes:
  • Once upon a time, the volcanic eruptions were thought to be the punishment of the gods. Nowadays, we know that volcanic eruptions are the result of the shining of the cave by the mantle along the ventilation holes in the earth’s crust. Of course, it does not make the explosive effect less destructive. List of potential volcanoes that are the most likely to create explosions and tragedies about the surrounding communities and the environment:

 

  • 1. Yellowstone Caldera, United States
  • Yellowstone National Park’s bubbling sulfur springs and the eruption of the erupting volcano have long attracted tourists. The park is of great interest with its breathtaking beauty. But under Yellowstone’s beauty there is a volcano that has the potential to destroy Western America and change the course of human history.

  • As its name implies, the super volcanoes are volcanic eruptions and are big. It’s really big. In fact, super volcanoes are a phenomenon observed by mankind. The latest surveillance explosion we’ve known has occurred in Yellowstone 640,000 years ago. The first super volcanic eruption, 2.1 million years ago, was an amazing event 25,000 times bigger than the 1980 Mt explosion. Helens killed 57 people and threw volcanic ashes all over the world.

 

  • Unlike traditional volcanoes, super volcanoes do not have a cone-shaped mountain, they are known as calderas – wrecked areas of previous super volcanic eruptions. Essentially, all of Yellowstone is a giant caldera, ready to fly and devastate humanity. As experts predict that a Yellowstone explosion will kill 87,000 people immediately, ash and gas clouds will flow into the jet stream and have unheard effects on the world’s food supply.

 

  • 2. Mt. Vesuvius, Italy
  • Mount Vesuvius in Campagnia has a history that makes it one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes. It last erupted in 1944, but generally only has 20 years of explosion. Also, 3 million people live relatively near the crater because they live only 5 miles east of Naples. This has made it the most densely populated volcanic region in the world.

  • Mt. Vesuvius is the only survivor of the European epoch during the last century and is probably famous for the massive explosions of the cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii in AD 79.

 

  • 3. Popocatepetl, Mexico
  • Popocatépetl is a large glacier summit about 35 km from Mexico City. About 9 million people live in the explosion radius of Popocatépetl and have exploded 20 times since 1519.

  • In 2000 it finally broke out. The preventive evacuation of 41,000 people in the surrounding towns prevented a major disaster.

 

  • 4. Sakurajima, Japan
  • This compound volcano in Japan was once its own island, but it caused the lavas to connect to the mainland with the explosion in 1914. Many experts call it “Vezbovi of the East” because of its high volcanic activity.

  • Every year thousands of small bangs come out of the summit of Sakurajima and the amount of ash in the surrounding area is set. However, a huge explosion could have fatal consequences for 700,000 residents of Kagoshima living only a mile from the Volcano. There are also special volcano shelters where the city can open debris trapped by people.
  • Galeras, Colombia

 

  • Located in southern Columbia near the Ecuadorian border, Galeras has been operating for at least 1 million years. The explosion, which was recorded for the first time and exploded with the explosion dating back to 1580, frequently erupted. More worrying is the fact that 450,000 calm cities with pastry towns are lying on the east slope.

 

  • In 1978, only 10 years later, in 1988 it was again active. When scientists organized a Ten-Year Story Conference addressing the dangers of Galeras, an unexpected explosion arose and 6 scientists and 3 tourists died. Since 2000, it has erupted almost every year, causing ash and lava to explode in the area, causing a jolt.

 

  • 5. Mt. Merapi, Indonesia
  • Mt. Merapi means Mount Fire which is a suitable mountain for the most active volcano in Indonesia and mountain which produces more lava flows than any volcano in the world. Mt. Merapi has exploded regularly since 1548 and has been active for the last 10,000 years. Experts believe that their activities led to the death of the Hindu Mataram Kingdom. At the moment, near the slopes, there is the city of Yogyakarta, which houses thousands of re sidents.

  • Mt. Merapi’s famous lava flows are 3-4 miles from the top, but some explosions cause the lava to be 8 miles away. This lava flow can travel at 70 mph. In 2010, an explosion killed 353 people and left 320,000 local residents homeless.

 

  • 6. Mt. Nyiragongo, Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Mt. Nyiragongo is one of the most active volcanoes in Africa. The large lava that is often seen in the crater is known for its lakes. Nyiragongo is a unique threat to the surrounding communities; In a rectangular stratovolcan a lake with such a large liquid lava flows.

  • As a matter of fact, from 1894 until 1977, there was a large, active lava lake on the summit crater of Nyiragongo. When crater walls were broken on January 10, 1977, the lava drained over an hour, causing a dense lava flow over 60 miles an hour. These flows quickly crashed local villagers and killed thousands of people.

 

  • In 2002 another big boom took place on Mt. Nyiragongo caused the flow of lava to Goma, the capital of the province. Fortunately, 400,000 citizens were already evacuated, but 147 people lost their lives as a result of the explosion. In Goma, 4,500 buildings were destroyed and 120,000 were homeless.

 

  • 7. Ulawun, Papua New Guinea
  • Ulawun is one of the most active volcanoes in Papua New Guinea. The explosions from Urawun originate from the central crater. 22 explosions have been recorded in Uruhun since the 1700s. In recent years, activities in Uruun have been consistent; Local residents have constantly witnessed relatively small bursts of ash and lava accumulating around them.

  • Due to its height, the greatest danger posed by Ulawun is structural collapse in the form of a major catastrophe, which could lead to an explosion that would lead to collapse into hundreds of square kilometers of space.

 

  • 8. Taal Volcano, Philippines
  • Taal Volcano is a cinder cone volcano. Located in the middle of Taal Lake, Luzon is located on the island in the Philippines. The capital of the Philippines is home to 1.6 million people in Manila.

  • Taal Volcano has had 33 explosions since 1572. While most of these explosions are limited to the intracaldera region, some explosions destroy the entire region with the effect of the explosion. In total, it is estimated that 5,000 to 6,000 people died in Taal. Even today, the only safe way to view active Taal Volcano is at a safe distance. Of course, these adventurers do not stop walking on “Volcano Island“.

 

  • 9. Mauna Loa, Hawaii
  • Mauna Loa is the largest volcano in the world in volume and surface area. It is also one of five volcanoes forming the Hawaiian Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

 

Mauna Loa, Hawaii

Mauna Loa, Hawaii

  • Mauna Loa regularly bursts at least for the last 700,000 years and its last bombing took place in 1984. Mauna Loa’s greatest danger to surrounding communities is lava flows. Although most of the flows from Mauna Loa are slow, they pose a minor danger to human life, and large bursts can cause fast-moving flows. In 1950, for example, Ho’okena Mauka village was destroyed by flowing lava. The intense 1984 explosion saw the flow of lava through Hilo, a very populated city, but could not reach any building.

 

  • A more rare but potentially more destructive danger posed by Mauna Loa is the potential for huge landslides triggered by the collapse of the sides of the volcano. Such a collapse is rare, but it can cause severe disasters and megatas.

 

  • 10. Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland
  • For “island mountain glacier” Icelandic, this volcano is one of the smaller glaciers of Iceland. The ice cap covers the volcano of the volcano at a peak height of 1,666 meters (5,466 feet). The 2010 bombing caused a major disruption to air travel in western and northern Europe. Approximately 20 countries have closed the airfield to commercial jet traffic and affected more than 100,000 passengers
