The destructive effects of volcanoes can be witnesses on land, air and water. In this regard, its negative impacts can be attributed to the interaction between volcanoes and air, water as well as land. It brings quite a number of effects like modification of climate and weather change, destruction of property, destabilization of ecosystem, loss of life and infections.

Climate and Weather effect

Whenever a volcanic eruption occurs, there is usually large cloud of ash emitted into the air. This ash, interacting with atmospheric moisture, normally forms a cloud covers thus rain associated with lightning in the form of a storm, which turns out to be disastrous (Rainbow Education Media 9). Similarly, whenever this thick cloud of ash reaches stratosphere, it cannot be dissolved by rain water. Consequently it leads to green house effect or warming of the earth (ORACLE a, p.1).
