Volcanic mountains are the opening in the earth’s crust from which the hot LAVA or magma and gases escape from below the surface of the earth. Sometime Volcanic Mountains appear and erupt in a short time and on the other hand there are permanent volcanic mountains which erupt lava time by time and they are erupting LAVA  for thousands of year, if we look back into history volcanoes had killed thousands of people and devastated hundreds of towns.

    This is poor. Aside from numerous spelling and grammatical errors, nearly every one of your volcanoes has a flaw in the caption and/or the photo. A quick check of the Wikipedia entries for these volcanoes would have eliminated any mistakes.

    The grey stuff that comes out of a volcano is not smoke. It is volcanic ash.

    1) The Pinatubo eruption left tens of thousands of people
    2) Nevado del Ruiz is spelt incorrectly.
    3) Mount St Helens killed 57 people, not the nearly 80 you suggest.
    4) Mount Pelee killed around 30,000 people not the 2,900 you mentioned. What whole town are you talking about?*
    5) Paricutin’s eruption lasted 9 years.
    6) Krakatoa’s eruption was heard 3,000 miles away. Most deaths were caused by the associated tsunami caused by the destruction of the volcano.
    7) That is a photo of Pinatubo used for Tambora. There are satellite images of Tambora that can be used if you need one.
    8) That probably is not a photo of Vesuvius as the volcano has a single clearly defined cone on its summit.
    9) What occurred at Etna in 1991? Etna’s deadliest eruption was in 1669 and killed around 20,000 people. It is the highest active volcano in Europe, but not the world. The tallest in the world is Cotopaxi in Ecuador.
    10) I do not know where you got your facts about Mazama from, but its last eruption was around 6,900 years before present.
