In 1985 a relatively small eruption from the Nevado del Ruiz volcano caused the town of Armero to be destroyed. This caused an estimated 25,000 lives, mostly at the hands of mud flows caused by the eruption. Nevado del Ruiz had two previous eruptions, although neither caused as much devastation as the 1985 incident.
