Research project

Your mission is to find information and report on a volcano, other than the ones listed above, that has erupted in the last 100 years. Your reports must include:
  1. Type of volcano
  2. Geographic location
  3. Name, distance, and population of nearest major city
  4. Dates of most recent and most destructive eruptions.
  5. Other events associated with the recent eruptions (earthquakes, floods, mudslides, etc)

Then, write a one page description on the major hazards to humans in the vicinity of this volcano. Speculate on what you would do if you were in charge of minimizing the risk to the population.
