The volcanologist call Mount Suribachi on the island of Iwo Jima, Japan , as the most dangerous volcanoes in the world.
Experts from the University of Manchester said, the devastating eruption of the famous mountain since World War II it was a matter of time.
Earthquake preparedness kit – If the eruption Suribachi happens then expected to generate a massive tsunami with waves as high as 25 meters sea that could destroy the southern region of Japan and the coastal cities of China , including Shanghai and Hong Kong .
Mount Suribachi be pemuncak 10 most dangerous volcanoes in the world that is likely erupted explosively over the next 100 years and could result in at least 1 million people were killed.
Another mountain that included this list is Mount Campi Flegrei near Naples, Italy. If the mountain is erupting, the impact is much more powerful than Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii 2000 years ago.
Although very rare eruption, but Mount Campi Flegrei is located very close to the city of Naples are inhabited by 4.4 million people so the threat is very real mountain.
“In many places in the world, oversight of the volcano is very poor and many of the less monitored volcano that is located close to densely populated areas,” said volcanologist, Professor Albert Zijlstra.
Since Mount Tambora erupted in 1815, said Zijlstra, has never been a more powerful eruption.
When Tambora erupted 200 years ago, the impact of the volcanic eruption made the world as if without a summer.
“In this century, there is a chance one will sedahsyat Tambora eruption,” he added.
Back to Mount Suribachi, the experts believe that the eruption is able to match the awesomeness of eruption of Tambora on Sumbawa Island, which is capable of causing significant climate change.
High Mount Suribachi is now 20 meters higher than it was in 1945 when US Marines raising the flag at the top of the mountain.
The growth of a magma chamber is believed to be the main factor that adds to the heights of Mount Suribachi.
In addition, the height of Iwo Jima Island coast also increases. Now, the island’s land surface as high as 17 meters above sea level.
That is, the island was taller one meter every four years during the last few hundred years.
If the eruption Suribachi happens then a tsunami with 25 meter water wall will be created. This tsunami can destroy the southern region of Japan and a number of coastal cities of China .
Suribachi eruption will equal the eruption of Mount Kuwae in Vanuatu in 1458 which resulted in a tsunami as high as 30 meters to the north of New Zealand and the resulting extinction in Polynesian culture.
Meanwhile, as one of the countries with the highest volcano in the world, Indonesia “donate” two volcano in this list. Both mountain is Mount Agung in Bali and Mount Kelud in East Java .

1. Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima, Japan
2. Mount Chilpete / Apoyeque, Nicaragua
3. Mount Campi Flagrei, Italy
4. Mount Aso, Japan
