Floodwaters rise after the volcano erupts. Scientists said the eruption under the ice cap was 10 to 20 times more powerful than one last month, and carried a much greater risk of widespread flooding.
The eruption caused a major transportation disaster in Europe and other areas. And this was from a small eruption. What would a big one do! We have recently seen mega-quakes and tsunamis in Sumatra, Indonesia on December 2, 2004 and Honshu, Japan on March 11, 2011. Is the world overdue for a mega-volcanic eruption? If so, when and where will the disaster strike? (Credits: Photos – Reuters and AP, Narrative – The London Financial Times & W. G. Foster).
