    Also, a lot of people do live by active volcanoes. The area around Mt Vesuvius is heavily populated for example.

    I live 500 metres from the source of the world's largest explosion in the last 50,000 years. It's erupted 50 times in the last 50,000 years, the last time was ~AD 180 and during that eruption it ejected 150 km3of ash 50 km straight up. It's part of the same volcanic line of activity as Whaakari/White Island which is 162 km away. That volcanic line extends in a straight line from about where I am to the Kermadec Islands.

    Auckland sits on 50 volcanoes, the last to erupt was Rangitoto which erupted 600 years ago.

    They've ordered 1.2 million sq cms of skin from the US for the burn victims and have sent some patients to Australia to relieve pressure off the burns units here (they flew them as far south as Christchurch and all burns units are maxed out).

    I imagine the whole world would struggle to cope with the casualties from a major eruption close to a major population centre (Campi Flegrei near Naples for example).
