What's to be Done

So, Mt. Vesuvius is covered in various excavation sites... whose physical needs and logistical support come from local communities living on top of the remains of Pompeii and Herculaneum despite Vesuvius having erupted 50 times since they were buried. When including the modern city of Naples, 3 million people live in its blast radius today.

Mount Ranier is a massive volcano and the most glaciated peak in the continental U.S... its massive Lahars have historically reached all the way to Puget Sound, putting parts of Seattle, Tacoma, and Bellevue in their deadly reach.
