Naturally volcanos will erupt or explode. Although it’s probably one of the most beautiful nature phenomenon’s to watch, it’s also one of the most dangerous. If you are lucky, in this lifetime, you will safely witness an eruption in a beautiful setting.
When Santa Maria’s Santiaguito lava-dome in Guatemala exploded in 2016, it sent volcanic ash as high as 16,500 feet (5 km) above sea level. Due to winds in the area, the ash drifted westward, while pyroclastic flows descended the eastern and western flanks of the mountain itself.
