Storyboard Text

  • Volcanoes are so rude, they can either int-erupt a lot...or end you. Don’t let it get to you.
  • WHAT is it?
  • the sudden occurrence of a violent discharge of hot materials (“ejecta”) (ex: ash, dust, gas compounds, lava, rocks, steam & volcanic material, etc.) are thrown out of a volcano & expelled into the air
  • WHEN is it most likely to occur?
  • When thick magma & large amounts of gas build up under the surface, eruptions can be explosive. Less gas & more viscous magma usually mean a less dramatic eruption, often causing streams of lava to ooze from the vent. Volcanoes generally experience a period of closely spaced eruptions followed by long periods of quiet. Most volcanoes show no regularity, & thus on the basis of past history alone cannot be considered "overdue" or "ready to blow."
  • WHERE is it most likely to occur?
  • at meeting points on the boundaries of “tectonic plates”; on land, the ocean floor, & under ice caps; over “mantle plumes”; within the “Ring of Fire” along the edges of the Pacific Ocean
  • HOW should I prepare for one?
  • Make Emergency Plans: Draw up an emergency communication plan. Identify emergency meeting points. Discuss the plans with your family. Consider potential financial implications.   Ensure You Have the Necessary Supplies: Put together an emergency supply kit. Create an emergency kit for your car. Consider respiratory protection. Prepare communication devices for updates.   Prepare for an Eruption: Know your community's warning system. Get familiar with the evacuation procedures. Develop a household evacuation plan. Stock up on necessities. Be prepared when you're traveling near a volcano.
