Lassen Peak


Volcanoes are some of the most beautiful and dangerous things to observe
in the world. Volcanoes are some of the most amazing things to watch, they make
you want to be close to them but it\'s to dangerous.The volcano I chose was
"Lassen Peak" located in California,USA.I chose this volcano because it\'s
located in California, and California is one of my favourite places in the
world.

Now I\'am going to tell you a little bit about Lassen Peak.This volcano is
located in Northern California.The volcano consists of a chain of vents aligned
roughly north to south, extending at least 8km north.Volcanism began at Lassen
Peak between 600,000 and 350,000 years ago. The people that studied this
volcano only use the last 35,000 years to predict the volcanoes next eruption.

The most recent eruption at Lassen Peak was in 1914-1917 A.D. The eruption
began on May,30,1914 when a small eruption occurred in a new vent near the
summit of the Peak. During the following year 1915 more than 150 explosions
occurred in various sizes. The explosions ended in about the middle of the
year 1917.

I did not find out how many people were killed by this volcano or if anyone
was killed.I fell this volcano most likely killed some people and destroyed
plenty of land.I would love to live in California that would be my dream,but
than again it could be a nightmare with all the earthquakes and volcanoes the
state has.

In conclusion I think we are lucky to live in Nova Scotia, because we have
no real danger it\'s just foggy and cold.
