Answer to Question #76961 in Human geography for nm
Why some volcano eruption caused more damage than others?
Some volcano eruptions cause more damage than others because of the primary factors. First, the amount of losses depends on the geographical position of the place of the people's settlement. The closer they live to the volcano, the higher is the percentage of the damage. Second, these natural disasters are usually followed by the lava and ash eruption. In case of the slow flow of lava, it is much easier to escape from it, in contrast to ash which spreads in the air much faster.
