Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Volcanoes Ways to minimise the impact of a volcano:*Spray the oncoming lava with sea water*Use barriers to avoid lava flow*Try to look for signs and predict when the volcano may erupt.*Have an evacuation plan from the area incase of an eruption.*Store food and water incase of a volcanic eruption. You may think it is strange to livenear a volcano but there are many reasons to live near one.People live near volcanoes for its minerals, geothermal energy, fertile soils and tourism. Volcanoes can cause tsunamis,flash floods, earthquakes, mud flows, rock falls, lateral blasts,lava flows, hot ash flows, avalanchesand falling ash. Volcanoes are formed when magma fromwithin the earth's upper mantle, works itsway to the surface. At the surface, it eruptsto form lava flows and ash deposits. Overtime as the volcano continues to erupt, thevolcano will get bigger and bigger. Damage done by volcanoes:Knock down entire forests, burn, bury or damage anything in its path including people,houses and trees. Ash can use roofs to fall and make it almost impossible to breathe. It can causehouses, buildings, roads and felids left covered in ash. A volcano is a mountain that opens downwardto a pool of molten rock below the surface of the earth. When pressure builds up, eruptions occur.Gases and rock shoot up through the opening and spill over or fill the air with lava fragments. What individuals can do to prepare for a volcanic eruption: * prepare an evacuation plan* Look for signs of a volcanic eruption such as: tiny earthquakes, escaping gas and changes in shape. * setting up camp in case of emergencies * Plan an evacuation route to get away from the volcano as soon as possible.
