Question: Are you "affraid" of an incoming volcano eruption? Can it be delayed or maybe the eruption's effects decreased?

  1. volcanic eruptions are definitely scary! but most can be predicted so we shouldn’t be caught by surprise too much. An eruption can’t be delayed, once it wants to happen it will happen, but the effects can sometimes be controlled. you can move people away from the volcano in time so that no one is killed for sure, and in Iceland in the 1970s there was an eruption and the lava was filling up the harbour which the town needed to survive! so the fire brigade there spoent days pouring tons and tons of cold water onto the lava to cool it down so that it would stop flowing and go a different way! it was amazing! and they saved the harbour! 😀
