Transcript of Santa Maria Volcano

Santa Maria A lot of people might ask, is Santa Maria active, dormant or extinct? Santa Maria is active, but let me show you how active it is. Eruption Information Type of Volcano Santa Maria is a stratovolcano. Also, did you know that stratovolcanoes are the most common type of volcano? Location Longitude Type of Explosion Classification Date of First Recorded Eruption October 24, 1902 Number of People Died Latitude 91.55w 14.76s Country Guatemala 5,000 but probably more Before this eruption, it had
been inactive for thousands
years. So you could almost
say Santa Maria made its
comeback! The one reason that so many
people died is because back
then they didn't have the
technology to warn or alert
people before the eruption. Picture of a stratovolcano Santa Maria is a explosive volcano. The explosion in 1902 was a plinian volcano.
