New Zealand’s volcano MT Ruapehu was located in between Auckland and Wellington. The volcano had a huge lake in its crater so everytime it erupted there was a combination of hot ash and water which causes a mudslide. The volcano erupted every 10 years. People who ski during the snow season ski on the volcano are at risk. If a mudslide was to occur the skiers would have 90 seconds to escape or they would get wiped out.
How did MT Ruapehu get a lake in its crater?
When will it erupt next?
When was its last eruption?
I now understand that it is dangerous to live near a volcano.
I now understand it is important to try to recognise when an eruption is coming and to get people away safely.
