This Is the Most Dangerous Volcano in the US – 24/7 Wall St December 22, 2021

I saw this recently on 24/7 Wall St – This Is the Most Dangerous Volcano in the US: Longer article.

Massive volcanic eruptions are among the best-known moments in history. When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, it destroyed the city of Pompeii and people for miles around it.

More recent eruptions are widely known parts of recent history. Millions of Americans can remember television coverage of the explosion of Mount Saint Helens in 1980. It was the deadliest volcanic eruption in American history, and caused over $1 billion in damages. It continues to be considered a dangerous volcano.

To identify the most dangerous volcanoes in the United States, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the overall threat score from the “2018 update to the U.S. Geological Survey national volcanic threat assessment.” The most recent eruption year also came from the USGS. The population within 30 kilometers and 100 kilometers (about 18 and 60 miles, respectively), for each volcano was obtained from The Smithsonian Institution’s “Volcanoes of the World” database.

The most dangerous volcano in the world is Kīlauea, Hawaii, an active shield volcano in the Pacific island chain.
