Modify the event                                                                                                                                             Once the eruption and lava flows have started you can modify the event either by diverting or chilling the flows. A volcanic eruption in 1973 off the southwest coast of Iceland threatened to destroy an entire community however the Icelanders sprayed seawater onto the lava to slow its movement by chilling. The efforts saved the port and the residents returned to rebuild
