There are no historical eruptions of Mount Shasta. A volcanic eruption was witnessed by sea in 1786. This is believed today to have been Mount Shasta.

The number of people killed in this eruption is unknown, because the area near Mount Shasta was not largely populated in the late 1700's. Bibliography:
http://volcano.oregonstate.edu/stratovolcanoes Type of Explosion:
Strato volcanoes erupt with andesite and dacite lavas. These lavas build high pressure, producing very explosive eruptions. Mount Shasta is a strato volcano, so it can be assumed that Mount Shasta erupts in this way. By: Kathleen Hablutzel
