The list of the ten volcano's could change in the blink of an eye. I think from all my research on the topic for my article, that the reason for Kilauea is listed because it keeps flowing a lot of times into the sea since 1983, so there may be a chance for an eruption. Good luck Jan with the info for your students, hope they enjoy learning the info, as I've learned quite a bit from my research, and found it to be very interesting.

I really don't understand what's so dangerous about Kilaueau. I mean, sure, it erupts a lot, but have there been any explosive eruptions like there are in the Cascades or in Alaska? I'd have Rainier at the top of the list, followed by Hood, just because of their proximity to major urban areas.

Yellowstone should be number 1, it's a Super volcano and when it erupts it'll take out half of the country.
