A very good morning to one and all present here. Today I’ll give a short speech on the topic of ‘Volcano’.
Google defines the term as “a mountain or hill, typically conical, having a crater or vent through which lava, rock fragments, hot vapour, and gas are or have been erupted from the earth’s crust.”
Wikipedia offers some more insight into this. It states as follows: “A volcano is a rupture in the crust of a planetary-mass object, such as Earth, that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface. On Earth, volcanoes are most often found where tectonic plates are diverging or converging, and most are found underwater.”
In layman’s terms, a volcano is a natural calamity that leads to dire consequences which include loss of life and property. Indonesia is the most prone to volcanic eruptions in the world and is known as the ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’. Its 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora is the most powerful in history.
