Volcano Art

Sometimes I draw pictures for my daughter to color because she is interested in a particular subject.

Volcanoes has been her interest lately.  I am not sure how that came about but it has been a very interesting subject.

Here are some interesting facts about volcanoes:

1. A volcano is a mountain that opens downward to a pool of molten rock below the surface of the earth. 

2. An erupting volcano can trigger tsunamis, flash floods, earthquakes, mudflows and rockfalls.
When pressure builds up, eruptions occur. 

3. In an eruption, gases and rock shoot up through the opening and spill over or fill the air with lava fragments. 

4. Eruptions can cause lava flows, hot ash flows, mudslides, avalanches, falling ash and floods. 

5. Fresh volcanic ash, made of pulverized rock, can be harsh, acidic, gritty, glassy and smelly. 

6. The ash can cause damage to the lungs of older people, babies and people with respiratory problems. 

7. Active volcanoes in the U.S. are found mainly in Hawaii, Alaska, California, Oregon and Washington, but the greatest chance of eruptions near areas where many people live is in Hawaii and Alaska.
