Children stand on top of a school building buried to its roof line on 12 October 1991. The school was initially partially buried by lahars from Pinatubo along the Bambam River on 24 August. Successive lahars along this NE-flank valley had traveled 50 km by the end of 1991. Photo by Chris Newhall (U.S. Geological Survey).
