The biggest blast of the 20th century

The most powerful volcano eruption of the 20th century occurred June 6, 1912. when Novarupta Volcano in Alaska, blasted a huge cloud of ash into the sky with a roar that could be heard that could be heard 750 miles away in Juneau one hour after the eruption began. The ash blanketed Kodiak Island, about 100 miles away, for the next three days, covering the town there in ash a foot deep, completely blocking the sun, causing buildings to collapse from the weight of the ash on their roofs. Experts say that an eruption of that scale today would ground commercial air travel across North America, due to the damage the ash could cause to jet engines, windshields and external parts.

Remember, Don’t be a victim!
