Most deaths during eruptions occur during pyroclastic flows/surges during an eruption and volcanic mudslides (known as lahars) after the eruption.

The deaths were caused by a pyroclastic surge of extremely hot gasses from the volcano's eruption. These gasses instantly killed anything in their path.The deaths were caused by a pyroclastic surge of extremely hot gasses from the volcano's eruption.
