    Mount Rainier: The flat floor of the Puyallup River valley near Orting, Washington, is formed by deposits of the year-old Electron lahar, which surged down from Mount Rainier (in background). Lahars, or volcanic mudflows, are rapidly flowing slurries of mud and boulders that destroy or bury most manmade structures in their paths. El Chichón volcano ( N, W; masl) is located in the State of Chiapas, southern Mexico. It lies some 70 km to the NNW of Tuxtla Gutierrez, the capital of the State of Chiapas, and 77 km to the SSW of Villahermosa, capital of the neighboring State of locopfl.com by:

    For the last , years the rate of erosion, by debris avalanche and glaciers, has been greater than that of the rate of volcano growth.. Mount Rainier is potentially the most dangerous volcano in the Cascades because it is very steep, covered in large amounts of ice and snow, and near a large population that lives in lowland drainages. m-high Mayon volcano is a stratovolcano on the island of Luzon, Philippines. Mayon is the most active volcano in the Philippines, having erupted over 47 times in the last years. Its last eruption was in March It has steep slopes (upper slope deg).

    Lava flows in Mount Rainier's past seem to have only effected areas on or very near the mountain. In some places ancient flows have been found up to 9 miles away from the base. If there is a large lava flow it will not effect any large cities. The first signs of volcanic activity at . Volcanic activity has played a dominant role in shaping the face of Earth. Since the Mount St. Helens volcano, located in the state of Washington, erupted violently on May 18, , volcanism has become a much-talked-about part of the weather and climate pictures of both the United States and the world.

Glacier Peak is the most remote of the five active volcanoes in Washington State, and more than a dozen glaciers descend its flanks, prompting its name. The peak wasn't known by settlers to be a volcano until the 's, when Native Americans mentioned to naturalist George Gibbs that "another smaller peak to the north of Mount Rainier once smoked.".
