Deadliest Volcano In Europe Has Claimed Over 2000 Lives | Raging Planet

  • Published on Jun 3, 2019
  • The high number of active volcanoes and the large population in Southern Italy has been a cause for concern throughout the country's history. Volcanologist, Dr Clive Oppenheimer, investigates these giant natural landmarks to be able to more accurately predict future eruptions.

    I'm so glad Mt. Vesuvius near Pompeii didn't erupt when I was there! WTF are people doing building and living where there are very dangerous volcanoes that could erupt at any time? The billion dollar question! It's amazing that they rebuilt modern day Pompeii full well knowing that Mt. Vesuvius will erupt again! Last time in 1946! Not a question of IF but when...good luck!! smdh

      People who build and live next to a volcano = People trying to remove their DNA from the human gene pool.

    Look at that a volcano I know what we should do build as many homes at its base as we can what could possibly go wrong

      1000s of people could wind up getting parboiled from a pyroclastic flow, that's what could possibly go wrong.

    I predict the planet will burn off the human virus over the next 3 years with a long series of gigantic volcano triggering earthquakes. just like the body kills infection with inflammation so too will mother earth burn we earth ravaging humans.

    This video is fake news . Etna is not the deadliest volcano, it is known as 'the gentle giant'

    • Alice Sacco

      Etna has a volcanic explosivity index of 6, though such eruptions occurs rarely. Still there are traces of it's most powerful eruptions on it's flanks. So Vesuvius (Vesuvius does VEI-6 eruptions more frequently).

    • kansasthunderman1

      @Alex Durn Any volcano can explode if the magma/lava mixes in a confined space and cannot escape freely.

      Strato volcanoes or mountains built of layers of debris are especially risky for explosions and releasing pyroclastic flows which can travel many miles.

      Mount Etna is a strato volcano on top of an ancient shield volcano. However the strato volcano is not structurally solid enough to contain the pressure of a magma/steam mixture and there is the potential for an explosion and a pyroclastic flow. These flows consist of an extremely hot mixture of lava, steam, and debris.

      In Etna's current state, the internal pressure is being relieved by the eruption of liquid basaltic lava which acts as a safety valve preventing an explosive eruption.
      However, if some of the vents become blocked, that could allow the pressure to build to an explosive level.

      @Alex Durn Etna can also produce a pyroclastic flow like Vesuvius.

      Vesuvius might be a satellite volcano of C.Flegrei, therefore a potential supervolcano.

    • 誰もnobody

      Because it is the most deadly volcano in the world, under the earth, in Italy, there are supervulcani if they erupted, Italy would collapse.
      And in Calabria there are many submarine volcanoes.

    Not sure where the video is getting 'erupted 4 times since 2000'. It erupted twice when I was there in 2006, and there was major eruption the year before. I think they mean 4 major eruptions maybe.

    • Actor Adam Anouer
      Actor Adam Anouer Month ago

      @Alice Sacco I agree. I've never actually known Etna to have an eruption higher than a 3 on the explosivity index. Granted it is a decade volcano but that's more due to it's location. Vesuvius is far more dangerous due to the hydrothermal activity within the magma chamber and the same is true for Campi Flegrei. Respect though, it's nice to see someone who knows what they're talking about.

    • Alice Sacco
      Alice Sacco Month ago

      @Actor Adam Anouer Etna isn't as nasty as Vesuvius, even though it can produce VEI-6 eruptions too.

    • Actor Adam Anouer

      There was an eruption just last year and I believe there was another in 2011. What was it like, scary though it is Etna actually looks beautiful to me.

      @Stella Kont Bless you. Santorini caldera is without a question the most potentially hazardous on earth I've never seen a volcano with such high potential to cause severe Tsunami damage besides Anak Krakatau (which I unfortunately had to learn the hard way). Thankfully those Volcanologists see this threat potential as well which is why Santorini caldera is a decade volcano one chosen to be monitored closely due to it's threat potential.

      On another random note... Santorini is a beautiful place :) Nice place for a vacation.

      Thira, Nea Kameni, Columbo reef and other parts of the Volcanic Giant called Santorini Caldera. Some years ago, in 2011 - 2012 a small volcanic unrest made us fear for the worse but it didn't happen. It doesn't mean it will not come another time. We never stop being aware of our land's identity

      Well, Call them Idiots as much as you want.
      But the Environment near an Active volcano are some of the most Richest and nutritious Environment (Including but not limited to, Dirt, Air, ETC)
      So risks are high, but so does the payoff
