Volcanoes can produce ash, toxic gases, lava flows, flash floods of hot water, and fast-moving flows of hot gases and debris. When a volcano erupts, some dangers can occur with little or no notice.
Volcanic eruptions can result in additional threats, including mudslides, power outages, contamination of water sources, and wildfires.
Serious health concerns after a volcanic eruption include respiratory illnesses, suffocation, burns, injuries from ashfall and collapsed structures, infectious diseases, and vehicle accidents related to the conditions caused by ash.
