Bad news

Magma is super-hot, melted liquid rock. It can reach temperatures of up to 1,100°C. It is found inside the volcano.



A volcano that shows signs that it will erupt soon is said to be ‘active’. Volcanoes that are not active now, but may erupt at a later time are called ‘dormant’. And those that scientists think will never erupt are called ‘extinct’.

Where do today’s stories come from?



An active volcano

A sleeping giant

This is magma that spits out of the volcano during an eruption. It can be thick and slow moving, or runny and fast moving. When it cools down, it hardens and turns into rock.

Floods in Gaza

More than 100 people had to leave their homes in Gaza recently because of floods. In the photo, a woman is trying to save some of her things.
