volcano factMain vent: This is the main exit point (opening or outlet) in a weak zone where molten magma is released to the surface.

volcano factSecondary vents: These are other smaller vents or opening through which ash and gases and lava escape.

volcano factAshes, clouds and cinders: As the eruption continues, ashes and gases are discharged into the air, which is carried further by wind action.

volcano factLayers of ash and lava: The walls of a volcano are usually made up of solidified layers of lava and dust.
