What is the most dangerous volcano in the world?

Italy’s Vesuvius has been a menacing figure since an eruption in 79 CE buried the city of Pompeii. Over the last 17,000 years, the volcano has gone through eight major explosive eruptions that were followed by large pyroclastic flows, according to the Smithsonian Institute/USGS Global Volcanic Program database.

Where are the 6 lava lakes?

Six such lakes are known in the world, at Kilauea (Hawaii), Ambrym and Yasur (Vanuatu), Erebus (Antarctica), Masaya (Nicaragua) and Nyiragongo (DR Congo). At the moment only four of these are active. A lava lake needs a constant, stable supply of lava.

How dangerous is lava flow?

Usually, a lava flow from an erupting volcano does not pose as problematic as other dangerous hazards, as it does not travel as fast as pyroclastic flows, block and ash flows, or lahar flows. During certain lava flow eruptions in Hawai`i, residents have been able to outwalk an oncoming lava flow*.
