Mud mixed with river flow can cause devastatingflooding along the route.Similarly, the ice floes formed in the river caused by ice clogging the rivers andflows more slowly. However, it can produce enough energy to destroy the bridge. Icemay accumulate on the edge or on top of weak layers of snow or unstable causescrash occurred.Pyroclastic flows (pyroclastic) arising from dust debris of ash, poisonous gasand hot rock from volcanic eruptions that spread quickly to eat anything that traveledto the effects of destruction and death.
