|Location||British Colombia, Canada|

The eruption began on August 14 at 0545 PDT, and lasted for 32 days, causing the already unstable caldera to collapse in an enormous pyroclastic flow and lahar formation, killing 112 people as abrsult. It was one of the worst known Canadian volcanic eruption in recorded history in terms of human impacts, and one of the most powerful in recent history, having revived a VEI rating of 6 once the analysis of the event was completed.
