Recognition of the volcanic unrest at Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines began when steam explosions occurred on April 2, 1991. The unrest culminated ten weeks later in the world’s largest eruption in more than half a century. Some volcanologists successfully forecast the eruptive events and their effects, enabling Philippine civil leaders to organize massive evacuations that saved thousands of lives. Nevertheless, coincidence of the climactic eruption on June 15, 1991, with a typhoon led to more than 300 deaths and extensive property damage. This reprint describes Mt. Pinatubo and details of the precursory activity, dome extrusion, discrete large explosive eruptions, climactic eruption, and effects of the 1991 eruption. Illustrations.
