  1. . What to do When a Volcano Erupts By Griffin, and Micayla

  2. Plan For A Volcano Erupt • Have a disaster plan. • Know whether or not you are at risk for danger. • Be prepared for mudslides, flash floods, earthquakes, ash falling, and acid rain. • Prepare a disaster supplies kit for your home and car. Include a first aid kit, canned food and a can opener, bottled water, battery-operated radio, flashlight, protective clothing, dust mask, goggles and sturdy shoes. • Know evacuation routes.

  3. During A Volcano Erupt • Follow the evacuation order issued by authorities. • Avoid areas downwind and river valleys downstream of the volcano. • If your caught indoors, close all windows and doors, put machinery inside a barn, and bring animals inside. • If you’re trapped outdoors, seek shelter indoors. If you’re caught in falling rocks, roll into a ball and protect your head. If you’re caught near a stream, be aware of mudflows. Move to higher ground. • Protect yourself when ash falls. Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants. Use goggles to protect your eyes. Wear a dust mask and keep car engines off. • You can out run a Volcano also.

  4. After A Volcano Erruption • Cover you mouth and nose. Volcanic ash can irritate your respiratory system. • Wear goggles and protect your eyes. • Keep your skin covered. • Clear roofs of ash. The ash is very heavy and can cause the building to collapse.
