In the month of October of 1882, a casualty occurred. In Indonesia the volcano Mt. Galunggung erupted. This eruption caused 4,011 deaths and 114 destroyed villages. It was also categorized as a VEI=5 volcanic eruption.[1] The VEI stands for Volcanic Explosivity Index and it records how much volcanic material is thrown out, how high the eruption goes, and how long it lasts. Mt. Galunggung is located in West Java, Indonesia (specifically 7.25 degrees south and 108.05 degrees east) on the Pacific Ring of Fire. The Pacific Ring of Fire includes islands and coasts of Asia and the west coasts of Central and South America. It is shaped like a horseshoe and has a height of about 2.167 meters above sea level.[2]
Mt.Gulunggung is a stratovollcano, what means it is

History & Volcanic Activity
The last major eruption on Galunggung was in 1982, which had a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 4 and killed 72 people. This eruption also brought the dangers of volcanic ash to aviation to worldwide attention, after two Boeing 747 passenger jets flying downwind of the eruption suffered temporary engine failures and damage to exterior surfaces, both planes being forced to make emergency landings at Jakarta airport.

One, a British Airways aircraft carrying 240 passengers, accidentally entered the ash cloud during night time in June 1982 150 km (93 mi) downwind of the volcano. All four engines failed due to the buildup of volcanic ash, and the aircraft descended for 16 minutes, losing 7,500 m (24,606 ft) of its 11,500 m (37,730 ft) altitude, until the crew managed to restart the engines.

The following month a Singapore Airlines aeroplane with approximately 230 passengers aboard also inadvertently entered the cloud at night, and three of its four engines stopped. The crew succeeded in restarting one of the engines after descending 2,400 m (7,874 ft). Both aircraft suffered serious damage to their engines and exterior surfaces.
