Volcanoes That Have Erupted in the Last 100 Years?


Among the volcanoes that have erupted in the last 100 years, it is helpful to extend that period of time by one year to include the eruption of Mount Novarupta in Alaska in 1912. The eruption of Mount Novarupta was the largest volcano eruption in the United States in the 20th century. For comparison, the eruption of Mount Novatura was 30 times more powerful than the eruption of Mount St. Helens. The eruptions of Lassen Peak in California that occurred between 1914 and 1917 were huge, but damages to buildings were minimum because of the remoteness of the area. Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980 and killed 57 people. Other major eruptions included those at Kilauea and Mauna Loa in the Hawaiian Islands.
