In the second photograph we can see an active volcano releasing lava and poisonous gasses into the air. Its eruptions form the so called flows, which are high-temperature clouds of ash and steam that can travel down mountainsides at speeds exceeding that of an airliner. They are very dangerous to the people living in the vicinity of the volcano. It is a well known fact that in the year 79 AD the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius buried the city of Pompeii. At the time of that eruption, the town could have had some 20,000 inhabitants. P.S. Today Vesuvius is not considered the most dangerous volcano in the world. That distinction belongs to Mount Rainier, the highest peak in the Cascade Range in Washington state, USA, which overshadows a population of 2.5 million.

This is written very well.

I would argue that steam can't travel down mountainsides, but it's the lava, which is molten (melted) matter that flows down.

Your construction and information given is well constructed.

Thanks, ibuffy, for the nice comment on the lava composition and the elements it can consist of.

Hi Victor, I think you did a great job. In my opinion -20,000 inhabitants is fine (living in it is understood)  By the way Victor, thanks for the information about Mount Ranier. My family lives about a mile away from it.

Let's hope for the best, Mike. I never thought myself  too that the so beautiful "Mountain"  could be more dangerous than Vesuvius...  

Have a nice and peaceful days.    Victor

Excellent work! I think this is fine.
