Active Volcanoes In Different Parts Of The World – Is One Near You?

The result of the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD was thousands of deaths in neighbouring cities. The volcano that had been regularly sending warning signals finally burried two major cities Pompeii and Herculaneum which led to preserving them almost intact, in the shape they were left in, for several centuries. Predictions of volcanic activity today are more advanced than during the times of Pompeii. Nevertheless, tragedies are not always prevented. The greatest tragedy of recent times occured during 1985 in Colombia when the volcano Nevado del Ruiz caused estimatedly 25,000 deaths. Check out the list of active volcanoes around the world.
