Devastated by a Volcano!

From the Series Disaster Survivors

On June 25, 1997, a volcano on the Caribbean island of Montserrat erupted, spewing hot lava and ash. Linda Daley was washing clothes outside her home in the nearby city of Plymouth when she saw fiery clouds begin to shoot out of the volcano. With clouds of ash and poisonous gases speeding toward her, how would she survive? Eyewitness accounts and incredible photos bring to life the experiences of ordinary people who faced catastrophic danger—and lived to tell their stories. Kids will discover the causes and characteristics of volcanoes, and learn about the scientific advances that now allow earlier warnings of possible eruptions to be issued. Safety tips show young readers what to do if they are ever near a volcanic eruption.
