Volcanoes

Volcanoes can cause terrible disasters. A volcano is a downward mountain that will open up to molten rock below Earth’s surface. According to Weather Wiz Kids, the friction from plates which fit like a puzzle on Earth’s crust, will cause a volcano to erupt. When magma from the upper mantle of Earth comes to the surface, a volcano is formed. The largest out of 1500 active volcanoes, is located in Hawaii and is called Mauna Loa (Volcanoes 2013). In the basin of the Pacific Ocean, the Ring of Fire is located. That is an area of frequent earthquakes and volcano eruptions. In conclusion, volcanoes can cause terrible disasters.
