The 10 Most Active Volcanoes In The World

Volcanoes are probably some of the most terrifying aspects of mother nature, as they have the capability of destroying an entire civilization overnight. Take, for example, Pompeii, which was once a bustling metropolis full of Roman citizens and authority. Unfortunately, one fateful night; August 24th, 79, Mount Vesuvius erupted, destroying the entire city and killing all of those unlucky enough to be stuck within the area at the time of eruption. Today, however, there are still a lot of active volcanoes still out there. Here are ten of the most active in the entire world.

Mount St. Helens

Mount St. Helens, found in Skamania Country, Washington, is known for its ash explosion. It is one of the most active stratovolcanoes in the entire world, though the last deadly eruption took place on May 18, 1980.

Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius, the aforementioned volcano that managed to bring down an entire civilization overnight, remains an active, and highly dangerous volcano today. The nearby population in Naples is considered a red zone, where 60,000 people currently reside.
