Today we give you eight of the deadliest volcanoes on record. So make sure to avoid the death and destruction by ducking and covering, it's the best way to avoid the imminent death.

In 1815 Mount Tambora in Indonesia rained down fire and ash, causing 92,000 deaths. This is still considered one of the largest eruptions in recorded history. As if the eruption and ash cloud wasn't enough, there was a subsequent tsunami caused by the eruption. The eruption spewed enough ash into the atmosphere to bury everything within 75 km under a meter of ash.
