Debris Avalanche / Lahar on Mount Rainier in Washington


A debris flow captured on video from Mt. Rainier, June 25, 2011.

On June 25th there was an avalanche/landslide on Mt. Rainier. Big Think has the story and AGU Blogoshere has the video. It’s pretty spectacular and illustrates what happens when a volcano erupts.
