Volcanoes are some of the most
beautiful and dangerous things to observe
in the world. Volcanoes are some of the
most amazing things to watch, they make
you want to be close to them but it\'s to
dangerous.The volcano I chose was "Lassen
Peak" located in California,USA.I chose
this volcano because it\'s located in
California, and California is one of my
favourite places in the world.
Now I\'am going to tell you a little
bit about Lassen Peak.This volcano is
located in Northern California.The volcano
consists of a chain of vents aligned
roughly north to south, extending at least
8km north.Volcanism began at Lassen Peak
between 600,000 and 350,000 years ago. The
people that studied this volcano only use
the last 35,000 years to predict the
volcanoes next eruption.
The most recent eruption at Lassen Peak
was in 1914-1917 A.D. The eruption began on
May,30,1914 when a small eruption occurred
in a new vent near the summit of the
Peak. During the following year 1915 more
than 150 explosions occurred in various
sizes. The explosions ended in about the
middle of the year 1917.
I did not find out how many people
were killed by this volcano or if anyone
was killed.I fell this volcano most likely
killed some people and destroyed plenty of
land.I would love to live in California
that would be my dream,but than again it
could be a nightmare with all the
earthquakes and volcanoes the state has.
In conclusion I think we are lucky to
live in Nova Scotia, because we have no
real danger it\'s just foggy and cold.
