The dome of Unzen, Japan Volcano collapsed and created a pyroclastic flow in '91. The people here escaped when the flow stopped before reaching them, but the deadly and terrible speed of it, is astonishing.  Pyroclastic flows are fluidized masses of rock fragments and gases that move rapidly in response to gravity. They  can form in several different ways, such as when an eruption column collapses, as the result of gravitational collapse or from an explosion on a lava dome.

Pyroclastic flows at Mayon Volcano - They are a fast-moving current of hot gas and rock (collectively known as tephra), which reaches speeds moving away from a volcano of up to 700 km/h (450 mph).[2] The gas can reach temperatures of about 1,000 °C (1,830 °F). Pyroclastic flows normally hug the ground and travel downhill, or spread laterally under gravity. Their speed depends upon the density of the current, the volcanic output rate, and the gradient of the slope. They are a common and…

Pyroclastic flow will destroy nearly everything in its path. With rock fragments ranging in size from ash to boulders traveling across the ground at speeds greater than 80 km per hour, pyroclastic flows knock down, shatter, bury or carry away nearly all objects and structures in their way. The extreme temperatures of rocks and gas inside pyroclastic flows, between 200°C and 700°C, can cause combustible material to burn, especially petroleum products, wood, vegetation, and houses. -- Samuel…

I made this for my high school Geology class, my professor loved it and I got an A+ :] Now that I'm in a University, I can see I missed a few marks on correc.

Must go faster!  Volcanic pyroclastic flow, a fast-moving current of superheated gas (which can reach temperatures of about 1,000 °C (1,830 °F)) and rock (collectively known as tephra), which reaches speeds moving away from a volcano of up to 700 km/h (450 mph).
